What is a NetID?

UWL NetID is a username to log into most UWL technology services.  This can include:

  • Campus Wireless Network & Network Authentication
  • Desire2Learn (D2L)
  • ITS Computer Labs and Pay-for-Print
  • Qualtrics
  • Classroom Technology Podiums
  • Library Services (Online Databases like Ebscohost and ProQuest)
  • And more...

A NetID is not the same as email address. Although username is the same for both systems, they can store passwords (and password expiration) separately. Visit the password reset utility for password-related issues.

Changing a password

Please note: While EagleApps (email) and NetID accounts are different, both passwords can be changed at once by using the password reset utility.

When changing a password, please be sure to follow the Strong Password guidelines listed on that site.
