Your NetID will give you access to campus services, including e-mail and file storage. New students should visit the NetID claiming website. First, you will need to enter in your University ID Number (UIN) and Activation Code. The UIN and Activation Code are within your Official Notice of Admission letter from the Graduate College. Second, you will select two security questions to protect your Net ID account. Third, you will need to choose a password for your Net ID account (remember to pay attention to the requirements for all passwords).
Have you previously enrolled at the University of Illinois? If so, there is no need to claim your NetID again. You will need to reset your password. You can find more information on the Technology Services website. It is likely that your NetID has been disabled and must be reactivated. Please contact Technology Services directly at 217-244-7000 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
