CWRU Network ID

Your CWRU technology account gives you access to dozens of resources. The CWRU Network ID is used by students, faculty, staff and university affiliates to access secure resources, including the wired and wireless networks, library databases, email and enterprise systems. The Network ID must be activated before it can be used.

Students are provided with a four (4) character PIN number during the admission process that enables them to activate their CWRU Network IDs.

New staff and faculty can activate their Network IDs with their seven (7) digit Employee ID, which is given to them by Human Resources or their department at the time that they are hired.

Affiliates of CWRU, such as research associates and staff employed by MetroHealth or the Cleveland Clinic, can request a Network ID through the Affiliate Account Request Form, and activate the ID with the information mailed to their non-CWRU email address.

CWRU staff, faculty and students who are unsure of their CWRU Network ID or passphrase can use the Verification Wizard to determine their ID and reset their passphrase.

All activation and verification tools are accessible through the link below or via the UTech Tools Page.
