University account (username and passphrase)

Your University account (formerly Network ID), consisting of your IU username and passphrase, is the key to your electronic identity at IU. New students and employees (as well as IU affiliates whose accounts are sponsored by an IU employee) typically receive this and an ADS domain account as their first computing accounts at IU; group and conference accounts also receive a University account upon account creation. The University and ADS domain accounts allow you to access a variety of IT services. After you have received your University account, you can create other accounts for yourself (for example, accounts on specific computer systems or storage systems).

IU Login

IU Login allows you to access multiple passphrase-protected web-based systems at IU.

Access the IU network when not on campus

You can use the IU VPN for remote access to the IU network. If you're connected to an off-campus network (for example, using a non-IU internet service provider), the VPN allows you to authenticate and act as part of the IU network. This provides access to IU resources (for example, library databases) as if you were on campus.

Guest accounts

If you are not formally affiliated with IU and are not eligible for a sponsored account, a Guest account allows you access to a limited set of IT services. (In addition to the UITS Guest account described here, some IU units may offer their own guest accounts to provide access to their services. For details, contact the unit you are interested in accessing.)
