Get a NetID

NetIDs are automatically generated based on information in the University's core business systems: GMS (human resources), Banner and Destiny (student systems), the Alumni database, the Sponsored University Associate (SUA) system and the MedStarGeorgetown HR system. To get a NetID, you must be active in at least one of those systems.

Employees

Submit GMS paperwork through your department's administrative manager. If paperwork has been submitted, you can check the Georgetown University online directory from campus each morning to see if your NetID has been created.

Students

Alumni

Alumni who never had a NetID can go to the Alumni NetID claim page and enter their registration number to generate a NetID.

Associates

When a NetID/GUID is created for an Associate, the information is sent by email to the Associate's email address in the SUA system. By default, Associates are not visible in the on-line directory.

Who do I contact if I need additional assistance or escalation with a NetID issue?

If you need help navigating the administrative process to get a NetID generated, please contact the UIS Service Center at help@georgetown.edu or 202-687-4949.

The paperwork's done. When will my NetID be created?

NetIDs are generated periodically through the day. You can find your NetID by checking the Georgetown University online directory.

How can I get electronic services now for faculty who won't start for several months?

It may be possible for the faculty member to be entered in GMS prior to the beginning of their contract. Please contact your Dean's office for assistance.

I have a contractor starting in my office. Can she get a NetID?
