Accounts & FAUNet ID

The FAUNet ID is the account name you use to login to many of the systems you will utilize in your daily life at Florida Atlantic University, and it is a part of your official FAU e-mail address (e.g., For students, the FAUNet ID is generated when they are admitted to FAU. For faculty and staff, the FAUNet ID is generated when the onboarding process has been completed within Workday. Prior to logging in to any of FAU's systems with your new FAUNet ID, you will need to activate it by visiting the FAU Account Self-Services portal.

At FAU we use single-sign on for most of our applications. This means that you will be using the same FAUNet ID and password for most of the applications offered to you as a student, faculty, and/or staff. 


FAUNet ID Changes

The original FAUNetID (username) is not subject to change. The only two exceptions are if an error was made in the spelling of your name that affected the FAUNet ID assigned to you, or if you have legally changed your name. Prior to changing your FAUNet ID, you must have had your legal name change recorded in the University’s database. Faculty and staff need to contact Human Resources; students need to contact the Registrar’s Office. Once your name has been officially changed, you may request a FAUNet ID change by submitting a FAUNet ID Change request.

Retired Faculty

Retiring faculty are eligible to keep their FAU email after leaving the University. This request is made with Human Resources upon the exit interview.
