Your NetID

Accessing Electronic Resources Off-Campus

Due to licensing agreements, off-campus access to electronic resources is restricted to current students, faculty, and staff. When trying to access resources, you will be prompted to enter your NetID and password. Your NetID is your access account through Northwestern. The most common format of a NetID is a combination of three letters (often related to your name) and three or four numbers (e.g., abc1234). Your NetID is different from your six-digit student/employee ID number.
