- Your NetID password is not the same as your NYU Google Apps password; see this knowledge base article for details.
- You are required to reset your NetID NYU password at least once each year; NYU Google Apps passwords do not currently have an annual reset policy.
- For security reasons, you can not reuse passwords that you've used before.
All NYU faculty and staff members, as well as students enrolled in degree or diploma programs, are provided with an NYU NetID (Network IDentification). Your NetID is a combination of your initials and a few random numbers, e.g., aqe123, and is usually printed on the back of your NYUCard. It is different from your University ID, which is also printed on your NYUCard, but is a longer string of numbers and starts with an "N".
Once activated (see below), your NetID is your key to many NYU online resources, including, for eligible community members, NYUHome and NYU Google Apps. Your NetID is also used to create your default NYU Email address (e.g., email@example.com).

- If you try to log in to an NYU website with your NetID and password and receive an error message telling your that your ID or password is incorrect, try logging in again, making sure that you have typed your NetID and password correctly. All NYU NetIDs are in lower case. Check to make sure Caps Lock isn't on by accident, and you're using the NetID that is usually printed on the back of your NYUCard.
- If you try again and you still can't log in, follow the forgotten password instructions above.
- If this still doesn't work, please contact the IT Service Desk for further instructions.
