About Your NetIDAll students, faculty, and staff at the University of Tennessee are provided with a NetID and password when they join the university. Your NetID permits secure access to a variety of applications and services. Applications that request NetID authentication vary by campus. For information about which application require NetID authentication, contact your local HelpDesk.
On the Knoxville campus, your NetID provides authentication for many services including:
Your NetID is associated with an entry in the online (white pages) directory, although this entry may be hidden for privacy reasons.
Faculty, Staff, and Students are assigned NetIDs on a routine schedule. Information is provided to OIT from both IRIS (the Payroll system) and Banner (the Student Information System). OIT uses this information to generate NetIDs.
If you do not know your NetID, you can find it by searching for yourself using the UT Online Directory at http://directory.utk.edu . Your NetID will be listed in the upper right hand corner of your directory entry along with your preferred UT email address.
