Your UA NetID is your personal identifier for a number of online services at the University of Arizona. Some of the services requiring a NetID include:
- E-mail and UITS computing accounts (CatMail, UAConnect, HPC)
- UAccess applications (Student, Employee, Analytics, etc.)
- D2L – a web-based course management system used in 700+ courses on campus
- New Employee Resources and Benefits Enrollment
- University site-licensed software
- OSCR computer labs
Why is the UA NetID necessary?
The UA NetID verifies your identity when it is used for online services the University of Arizona provides. It helps ensure the privacy of personal information and restrict the use of resources to those for whom they are intended.
By University policy, it is your responsibility to safeguard the security of your password. Do not share it with anyone else.
- If you are a student who needs to share information in your UAccess Student account with someone else, please establish a Guest Center account for those you want to share your information with, and keep your NetID password private.
