A NetID is a personal identifier that allows employees and affiliates to access a number of online services at the University. The NetID verifies your identity when you use many of the online services the University of Arizona provides. This ensures the privacy of personal information and restricts the use of resources to those for whom they are intended. Go to the NetID website to create your NetID and to learn more.

Some of the services requiring a NetID include e-mail and UITS computing accounts; web applications (UAccess); university-site-licensed software, and UITS computer labs.

  • E-mail and UITS computing accounts (CatMail, UAConnect, HPC)
  • UAccess applications (Student, Employee, Analytics, etc.)
  • D2L – a web-based course management system used in 700+ courses on campus
  • New Employee Resources and Benefits Enrollment
  • University site-licensed software
  • OSCR computer labs

University Information Technology Services (UITS) provides free email accounts to University employees, students, affiliates, and Official Retirees. This is the official means of communication between the university and you. Your email is automatically created when you create your NetID: [yournetid] More information here or call the help desk at 520-626-TECH.

You must have a current University of Arizona CatCard before requesting University-issued keys. You must also have a key request form signed by the authorized key signer. Policies and procedures for key issuance can be accessed here.

University buildings are being fitted or retrofitted with keyless access on exterior doors and certain controlled access areas. Your departmental business manager will arrange to have your CatCard activated for buildings and areas you are authorized to enter. Your access code is the last 4 digits of your Employee ID. University buildings are normally unlocked from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. After-hours access requires keyless access entry.

Students, faculty, staff, and some Designated Campus Colleagues (DCCs) of the University of Arizona are eligible to receive a CatCard. To obtain your CatCard, bring the following items to the CatCard Office:

  • A government or state issued photograph identification such as a driver's license, state identification card, or passport. A high school issued ID is not an acceptable form of identification.
  • A completed and signed Terms and Conditions form
  • Student or employee ID number

Note: Student and employee ID numbers will not appear on the face of your CatCard, but will be encoded electronically to be used for University internal purposes only. The number will not be provided to outside entities without your prior consent.

To purchase a permit, you will need your NetID to log into your Parking Account Portal. Don't create a new account, it may delay your access to the Parking Account Portal. Once you login, go to the Get Permits.  If a permit is available for sale, follow the prompts to purchase. For complete step-by-step instructions, view the Parking Account Portal Instruction Manual.
