How do I log in?

You login using your NetID and password.

What is my NetID?

A NetID is a unique, alphanumeric identifier that faculty and staff can use to log in to systems and computing resources in the Duke Computing Network. Your NetID is assigned access privileges according to your position at Duke. More and more systems across Duke are incorporating NetIDs for their users' convenience. The more systems that use NetID, the fewer logins and passwords Duke Users will need to remember.

How do I find out whether I have a NetID?

  • Browse to the Duke Directory Server Gateway
  • Type your name in the entry field and click Search.
  • Click on your name in the results list.
  • When your directory information is displayed, look for your NetID in the lower left under Organizational Information.

I know I have a NetID password, but I can't remember it. What do I do?

  • Click on the "Forgot Your Password" link on the NetID log in page.
    OR
  • Contact the OIT Help Desk at 684-2200 (University employees) or the DHTS Help Desk at 684-2243 (DUHS employees).
    OR
  • Download the Password Change form. Follow the instructions on the form for submitting it to the OIT Help Desk. It takes about 24 hours to reset your password.

I need to change my NetID password. What do I do?

  • Open a browser and go to the Online@Duke web site
  • Under the NetID Services link, click "Change your password". The Duke University NetID Services window opens.
  • Type in your NetID and password, click Enter. The "Change your password" window opens.
  • In the "Old password" field, type your current NetID password. In the "New password" field, type in your NEW password, then re-enter it in the "Confirm new password" field. Click Submit.
  • If you prefer, you can contact the OIT Help Desk at 684-2200 (University employees) or the DHTS Help Desk at 684-2243 (DUHS employees).

How do I know my information is protected?

  • Your information is secured with your NetID and password. No one will be able to see your information except you.
  • Make sure you have a "strong" password that combines letters, numbers, and symbols.
  • Don't share your password with anyone.
