(Faculty/Staff should instead go to the Faculty/Staff password page)
HuskyID Account Information
- Undergraduate degree students will have a HuskyID account created when they apply. Those who pay their tuition deposit for their first year of attendance will have a network and email account linked to their HuskyID. They will be notified what their HuskyID is and how to use it (including the initial password) in the application-acknowledgment letter they receive from the Admissions Office.
- Graduate degree students and non-degree undergraduate students, (no tuition deposit required for these types of students) will have a HuskyID account created when they have at least one course scheduled. If you were a recent BU undergraduate student and your account has not yet become inactive, your HuskyID and password remains the same. If your account did become inactive or you forget what your password was, you will need to reset your password to gain access to your account. If you are a brand new BU student, you should receive notice of your HuskyID from the graduate office or you can lookup your HuskyID in the student directory and then you will need to reset your password to gain access to your account.
- Your Student HuskyID is your single sign-on account for all university related systems. Your HuskyID will give you access to all university systems including public computers across campus in computer labs, Office 365 Student email, ISIS portal, BOLT, Wireless connections, Student computer network registration, MyHousing, HuskyGold, Print Balance page, Web Print Service, Rescomp ticket page, Remote Access Service, Student Worker eTime, and any resource that is protected by HuskyID Single Sign-On.
- A Student's HuskyID consists of student initials (2 or 3 letters) followed by a 5-digit random number followed by @huskies.bloomu.edu.
- You can verify your student HuskyID or look up other student's email addresses by visiting the student directory lookup page.
- Your HuskyID account will become inactive within 8-9 months after you last attend BU. At that time you will receive an email notification that your HuskyID is becoming inactive in 30 days as well as additional information about the account transition, including the opportunity to opt-in to keep your Office 365 email account even after your HuskyID becomes inactive.
