Most of the student online resources at Oregon State use the ONID credentials. This includes Canvas, ONID Email, Online Services, and the ONID settings page.
After completing the sign up for ONID, the last page will display your ONID Username. This generally takes the form of your last name followed by the first letter of your first name, but will vary depending on the length of your name, and if you have a common name.
When signing in with your ONID, make sure and only use your ONID username, and not your full email. For example, if your name is 'John Doe', and your ONID username is 'doej', you would use 'doej' as the username whenever signing in. Your password will be the same one you created when registering for ONID.
Here are some common areas you will use your ONID account as a login:
ONID Settings - Main page where you can manage mail forwarding, spam, and other settings for your ONID account
How do I change my ONID Username?▸
If you are in need of changing your ONID username, read more on our Name Changes page.
How does ONID printing work?▸
All ONID printing is done with BeaverPrint. Information on how to use this tool can be found on our Helpdocs page.
What about ONID web services?▸
With ONID, you can create, maintain, and control a personal website hosted right on Oregon State servers. Oregon State now has 2GB (per user) of space that can be used for blogging, forums, galleries, or even coursework. These sites are hosted at people.oregonstate.edu. You can also use Google Drive for web sorage, and can be accessed at drive.google.com
How do I publish a website?
Creating a website on the ONID web servers is a fairly straightforward (albeit technical) process, and we have outlined what to do on our publishing Your Web Site page.
How do I access the ONID Shell?▸
ONID has provided a shell server with which to connect, so that students can have some hands on experience with Unix without having to create their own Unix computer. Again, this is a fairly technical topic, so we have outlined the process on our Shell/Unix page.
