Student Network ID and ADS Domain Account

The Network ID gives students access to the computer systems maintained by UITS at IUPUC. With a Network ID, students can create various computer accounts, change the passwords for their accounts, choose their preferred email address (the address that corresponds to the account where they want to receive their messages), and more. With a Network ID, students can log into Student Technology Center computers, as well as use Canvas, IU's online course environment (canvas.iu.edu).

Students who do not have a Network ID should see the IU Accounts Management Service page at itaccounts.iu.edu. On the first screen, select "Create my first IU account." From there, the student will be asked to review and agree with the guidelines for appropriate use of IU accounts. Students will then identify themselves by entering last name, birth date, and the last four digits of their IU student ID number.
