TU NetID Activation Complete

Your NetID is now active. You may print this page for your records. You will also receive a copy by e-mail at your TU e-mail address and your personal email address if one is already recorded in our system.

That email will provide a copy of your NetID (username) and your TU email address. Using the NetID you were supplied and password you set during the activation process, you can also log back into the NetID Management system using your NetID and password, and view your NetID, email address, and other information about your NetID.


Your NetID provides access to many university services. You need it to login to your office computer, as well as many web-based applications, including:

  • PeopleSoft (Towson Online Services)
  • E-mail (Outlook), OneDrive, SharePoint
  • Timesheets
  • Blackboard

If you are a faculty/staff member, you must enroll in Duo Multi-Factor Authentication within the next week. Towson University uses Duo Multi-Factor Authentication to enhance the security of NetIDs and to prevent data breaches. Duo requires a second form of identification to help you securely login to systems the university wants to strongly protect.

Duo enrollment will be enforced within 1 week, but It is highly recommended to enroll in Duo as soon as possible, with more than one device. You can read more about Duo at https://www.towson.edu/duo, or access the Enroll and Manage Duo Devices app on the NetID Tools page at http://www.towson.edu/NetID.
