How do I obtain a UIC NetID?
Explains how new students and faculty can get a net Id
A UIC network ID, or NetID, is a public identifier used for authentication to many services provided by the Technology Solutions as well as many University of Illinois computing and networking services. The NetID is not a password and it is not an account itself but it is required in order to access Technology Solutions and University services.
Student NetIDs are automatically assigned when a student is admitted to UIC. Graduate students, please note that college admission letters may sometimes be sent ahead of a university admission process. A UIC NetID will not be assigned until university admission takes place. When your university admission process begins, you may activate your NetID.
Faculty and staff
Faculty and staff can self-select their NetID via the UI New Hire process. The NetID must be a minimum of 3 characters and maximum of 8, using letters and numbers only. Once chosen, a NetID cannot be easily changed, so choose carefully.
Units that wish to obtain UIC NetIDs for guests should contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
