Activate your NetID

Incoming students cannot activate their NetIDs until early May, after the confirmation deadline. Students will be notified by email when NetID activation is open.

Each Notre Dame student has a unique NetID that is a combination of the first letter of their first name and all or a portion of their last name. Some NetIDs also contain a number, depending on the number of individuals who have attended the University with that combination of first letter and last name. Notre Dame assigns your NetID, your computer username, to you. Your NetID is your username for all Notre Dame accounts.
