Accounts & Identity
A Notre Dame NetID is automatically created for the most students, faculty, staff, and some affiliates at Notre Dame. That NetID will never be reassigned or transferred to another person.
If you are new to the university, when your NetID (username) has been created you will receive an email to your personal email address with a link and instructions on how to activate your new account. You will be required to set a password, a security question and enroll at least one device for two step authentication. We recommend you complete the activation from a computer. If you did not receive the activation email or you experience problems, contact the OIT Help Desk (574-631-8111).
As of May 1, any new password/passphrase must be at least 16 characters in length. There are no additional complexity requirements.
Once you've enrolled in Okta, you can now reset your forgotten password following these instructions. If you need assistance, please call the OIT Help Desk (574-631-8111) for assistance.
Other Account Resources & Information
Keep your password secret from family, friends, and even the OIT Help Desk. Remember, anyone with your NetID and password can read your email, view and change personal information and settings, and access any sensitive data on your computer. Keep personal and University information safe by not sharing your password with anyone. See the Responsible Use of Information Technology Resources policy for details.
