Your Princeton netID and login

What is a netID?

Your netID is a unique identifier assigned to you when you join Princeton.  Your netID, in combination with your password, allows you to log into Princeton systems and services.  You cannot change your netID, but, once you have created your password, and accessed your Princeton email, you may request an Email Alias (Personalized Email Address).

New Account? Check your personal email

Your netID is sent to the personal email you provided to Princeton. Check your email (and your junk folder).  If you no longer have access to the email account you provided to Princeton, Contact Information Technology.

Princeton Login Screen

The Princeton Central Authentication System (CAS) provides you with sign-on access to our Princeton systems. When you log into most Princeton systems, you will be presented with a standard login page called Princeton University Central Authentication Service (CAS).

Central Authentication Service Login Page

Am I seeing a legitimate login page?

To verify you are on a legitimate Princeton Central Authentication login page, check the URL address. It should say https://fed.princeton.edu/cas/login
