What is an IU username?

Your IU username is the name with which you log into your accounts and access other network services. For current Indiana University students, faculty, and staff, your username is assigned automatically based on your last name, first name, and possibly middle name.

Your username is the section of your IU email address before the @ (for example, username@indiana.edu), and is also part of your IU Network ID.

All usernames at IU (for personal as well as group or departmental accounts) are from three to eight characters long.
