Get Your UW NetID

The UW NetID is a logon account which stands for University of Washington Network Identification; it provides access to the following:

  • UWB Computer Lab and Computer Classrooms
  • UWB Wireless Network
  • MyUW  to check your personal UW information: student grades and schedules, employee payroll records and benefits files
  • UW Email, Web Publishing, and Streaming Media. The services listed will depend upon the nature of your affiliation with the UW (faculty, staff, student, clinician, alumnus, visitor). Visit IT Connect | Accounts and Passwords for more details.

Create Your NetID


  1. Visit this webpage and follow the instructions.
  2. Select and configure your email service.


  1. You'll need your Employee ID Number (EID). Your EID is a 9 digit number assigned to you by the Payroll Office. It is not your social security number. If you have received a paycheck, your EID appears on your pay stub. If you do not know your EID, contact your Payroll Coordinator.
  2. Create a password. Visit Choosing a good UW NetID and Password page for tips on selecting a secure NetID and password.
