The date you can activate your UDelNet account will depend on when you will attend UD and your classification as a student.

How do I activate my UDelNet account?

An active UDelNet account provides access to UD email and a host of other services available to UD students.

  1. Review UD computing policies
  2. Activate UDelNet account
    • Know your UD ID (a 5-9 digit number) and your PIN. During the admissions process, undergraduate students acquire a UD ID and PIN; new graduate students set their own PIN during the matriculation process.
      • New undergraduate students: If you forget your PIN, follow this link to reset your PIN. Choose the appropriate entry from the form's drop-down menu. If you have difficulty, call the Registrar's Office for assistance (302-831-2132) or go to the UD Visitors Center (210 S. College Avenue) with your UD icard or UD#1 card to select a new PIN.
      • New graduate students: If you do not already have a PIN or do not remember your PIN, follow this link to set or reset your PIN. Choose the appropriate entry from the form's drop-down menu. If you have difficulty, contact the Office of Graduate and Professional Education, gradoffice@udel.edu or (302) 831-8916.
      • Continuing Education (CEND) students: If you do not know your PIN, call the ACCESS Center at (302) 831-2741 or (302) 831-8843 to set it.
    • Choose your UDelNet ID and password
      • Go to http://www.udel.edu/network, log in using your UD ID and PIN, and then follow the prompts to activate your account. Most new students must complete an electronic citizenship exercise before they can select a UDelNet ID (email username) and password.

How do I log in to my UD email account?

After you activate your UDelNet account, you will have a username and password to log in to UD's email system at Google Apps @UDel.edu. All official University correspondence is sent to your UD email address. You are responsible for reading this mail.
