Cornell NetIDs

To access many of the university's IT resources, you'll need your active Cornell NetID and password.

Your NetID is a unique identifier that provides access to your Cornell email and other non-public Cornell resources and information. To protect your personal information and Cornell data, never share your NetID password with someone else.

If you have any questions about NetIDs or need help activating your NetID or setting up your Cornell email address, please contact the IT Service Desk.

With your NetID, you can

  • Access the Student Center to check your class schedule, see your grades, access your Bursar account, order your transcript, and update your addresses and emergency contacts.
  • Access Cornell Library services and Canvas, Cornell’s course management system.
  • Sign in to Cornell Google Workspace for Students, Cornell's email, calendar, and collaboration service for students. Your Cornell email account will be used for official university announcements.
  • Complete online evaluations, and more.

Computer labs

Students have access to computer labs on campus.

Most labs function on a first-come, first-served basis, while others offer reservations.

Some campus libraries offer public computers, and Olin Library and Mann Library offer laptop and equipment loans.

How can I print on campus?

CU Print is a fee-based service that lets you print to laser printers and plotters located in Cornell's computer labs, libraries, and elsewhere around campus, using a lab computer or personal computer connected to the Cornell network.

To use CU Print, you must first create an account, to which you can add money with a credit or debit card. CU Print deposits are nonrefundable.
