HuskyID Account and Password Information
(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 are given their HuskyID and HuskyID 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 active HuskyID and password remain 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 grad student, you will receive notice of your HuskyID and password from the graduate office. You may also 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, MyHusky portal, BOLT, Wireless connections, Student computer/device network registration, Media Device/Gaming Console Enrollment, 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.
- Your HuskyID account will become inactive approximately 8-9 months after you last attend BU, typically shortly after two succeeding semesters conclude. At that time you will receive an email notification that your HuskyID is becoming inactive in 1 month 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.
- After your HuskyID account is inactive, whether or not you chose to opt-in to keep your Alumni Office365 Email Account, separately you have the ongoing opportunity to enable an MyHusky Alumni Account you can use when you need to order transcripts, pay bills, retrieve copies of your 1098T tax forms, and other similar activities. Please note these are separate alumni accounts and do not share the same password.
