Accounts & email

All IU students, faculty, and staff have access to IU email and account services. From basic computing accounts to research and specialized system accounts, UITS is here to serve your technology needs.

Logging in

When you create your first university computing account at IU, you’ll set up your electronic identity, which consists of an IU username and an IU passphrase. In addition to your passphrase, IU requires an additional layer of security with Two-Step Login (Duo) when you log in to almost all technology services at IU. Note: IU Guest accounts do not require Two-Step Login.
