NetID: Your Key to UR Technology

Your NetID is the key to a variety of online services at the University of Rochester. This service is part of a University authentication/security measure to ensure that accounts are managed more securely across all campuses.

New to the University?

If you are a new student or new employee, initialize your account and set your NetID password.

If you are not a UR faculty, staff, or student, request a Guest NetID.

Manage Your Existing NetID

To change your NetID password, recover your forgotten password, or set or change your security question, go to the myIdentity portal.

You may also use a paper-based process for resetting your NetID password.


To create your NetID, request a promo code by emailing with your name (include maiden and former names), class year, school, and address. You will receive your promo code and instructions, which will direct you to set up your NetID through the Rochester Alumni Exchange portal.
