Dartmouth Passwords

All current faculty, staff, alumni and students of Dartmouth have a Dartmouth Account with a corresponding user name (NetID) and password. Your user name (NetID) and password are what identifies you on the Dartmouth network and allows you to authenticate in order to access your e-mail account and other systems. It is your electronic fingerprint.

As a responsible member of the Dartmouth community, it is critical you maintain the security of your account. If someone obtains your user name and password, they can log into systems that do not require an additional authentication step for access as if they were you. If you think someone is using your password or that your account may be compromised, you should change your password immediately.

Find Your NetID

To find your NetID, go to:

 Set an Initial Password

New users should claim their account at to set an initial password.

Change Your Password

Go to the Dartmouth Directory Manager, a web-based utility designed to allow you to edit selected Dartmouth Name Directory (DND) fields and mail settings associated with your account.
