IT Information for Incoming Students

Network and Account Information

All enrolled students receive a University of New Haven network account. The account name and password is automatically generated and the account information is sent by emaill to the email address provided by the student. This process generally starts in March for students beginning classes in the fall.

This login information is used for all access to the University's network and services. These include the myCharger Portal, Banner (student registration system), Blackboard (Learning Management System), and the University of New Haven email account, which is hosted by Microsoft's Office 365. Accessing the wireless network or logging into a computer in the library or a computer lab also requires your student account login. The University's West Haven Campus offers wireless access for your laptop computer, tablet, smartphone or other device in almost all locations. Students should log in to the Student network, which is a secure network designated specially for their use.

If you do not receive your login information within 3 business days after your confirmed acceptance or deposit, contact the Student Technical Support Office by emailing or by calling (203) 932-8324, Option 2. Please be prepared to answer several questions that will verify your identity for the staff before they provide you your login information. If you previously received your login and you have forgotten your password, you'll need to reset it. For more information, on resetting your password, visit the Office of Information Technology on myCharger.
