All faculty, staff, students and guests are assigned a Rutgers unique identifier known as a NetID, comprised of initials and a unique number (e.g. jqs23). In order to access many of the electronic services available to you at Rutgers, you need to activate your Rutgers NetID. Your assigned NetID will appear on the activation screen.
Access to nearly all of Rutgers IT services requires the use of a unique network ID (NetID). Most students are assigned their NetIDs when going through the enrollment pathway. Students, faculty, and staff can manage their NetID, select other Rutgers IT services, and manage email addresses at netid.rutgers.edu There are also tools to manage passwords and update security questions (used to help reset forgotten passwords).
