NetID Resources

The NetID is the Network Identifier that UConn issues students to allow access to most computing services. These services include: HuskyCT or UConn Anyware that you may need for your course. A NetID consists of three lower case letters (usually your initials) followed by five numbers, i.e. abc06003. If you have taken a UConn Early College Experience or an on-campus course, a NetID was assigned to you.

Returning UConn Students: Locate your UConn NetID and password. To find your NetID or to reset your NetID password visit the NetID website or call the Technology Support Center at 860.486.4357.
