Access Northeastern Account

Beginning in July 2020, Northeastern upgraded our Identity Management system. The new system provides more self-service options for alumni accounts, and enhanced security and protections through two-factor authentication.

If you graduated in 2013 or later, your username and password remain the same as your student account. Please follow these steps to log into your Northeastern account directly through the services listed below. 

Should you have any difficulty in accessing your account, you can reset your password, or contact the ITS Customer Experience team at 617-373-4357.

Do you have 2FA?

To increase account security, Northeastern is expanding its two-factor authentication (2FA) enrollment requirement. As a result, all Northeastern alumni account holders must enroll in Duo, the university’s 2FA provider. Enrollment is required for continued access to university systems and web services such as NUsource, email access and online library resources. Please note, you will need your current username and password to enroll in 2FA.
