Campus Library FAQ: How do I set up a UW Net ID (or reset my password)?

Frequently asked questions at the UWB/CC Campus Library

Creating a UW NetID for Cascadia Students

1.  You must have a Cascadia Network Account to get a UW NetID. If you do not have a Cascadia Network Account yet, use the Student Account Management Tool to create one.  You will need your Student ID and PIN to complete this process.  More information is available at the Cascadia College web page about UW NetID (Network Identification).

If needed, further help is available at The Learning Center.

Once your Cascadia Network Account is set up you are ready for the next step. 

Note: you will need to wait 24 hours after registering for classes before you can create a UW NetID.

2.  Go to Get Your UW NetID.

  • Select “I don't have a UW NetID” and click “Next”
  • Select “Cascadia Student” and click “Next”
  • Enter your Cascadia network user name and password, then click "Login"
  • Follow the onscreen instructions to create a UW NetID and password. Each UW NetID is unique and permanent.

Note: It can take up to 24 hours for your UW NetID to grant you access to the library's room reservation system, electronic resources, and your library account. However, you can check out items at the Campus Library with your Cascadia student card and use library computers to access electronic resources by signing in with your Cascadia Network account. Also, library staff would be happy to reserve study rooms for you. For more information, call 425-352-5340.
