ONID

What is an ONID Account?

OSU Network Identification (ONID) is a universal computer account. ONID users receive a free email address with their ONID account, but ONID is much more than just email. With an ONID username and password, you also get access to University technology services, the wireless network, CanvasResNet, IS computer labs, the Interlibrary Loan, and much more. There is no comprehensive list to what you gai naccess to with an ONID account, because we are constantly adding additional tools and services, but most of those resources can be found as helpdocs under "applications".

Who can get an ONID account?

  • All admitted students are eligible from the time they are admitted until their admitted term.
  • All students that are eligible to register for classes.
  • All employees of the University, including students and graduate assistants, are eligible from the beginning of their employment through their last day of work.
  • All emeriti, adjunct, or courtesy faculty are eligible for the duration of their appointment.
  • All Central Oregon Community College (COCC) students that are dual-enrolled at OSU or OSU-Cascades are eligible as soon as they are admitted. All other COCC students are only eligible if they register for an OSU course.
