A NetID is a unique identifier assigned to each new Rutgers student and employee. Usually it consists of a person's initials and a number, such as jqs23.
The NetID and corresponding password are used to access nearly every secure system and technology at the university, including email, learning management systems, library resources, wireless internet and computers in labs.
In addition to this ID and the password, a person is assigned one or more roles at the university, such as student, employee or guest. These roles help determine which systems you can access by default.
