Next Steps


Activate your NetID

Your NetID and password give you access to online services and resources offered by Queen’s. Your NetID will never change, but you should change your NetID password often. A strong NetID password ensures that both your personal information and university resources are protected.


Set up your Queen's email

As a new Undergraduate Student, your email service will be provisioned in early June. Once your email is provisioned, you will have access to Office 365 and a full suite of collaboration tools and applications.

You will receive an email with information about your Queen's email account in early June. Log in and make sure everything is set up to your satisfaction. From this point forward, Queen's will only communicate with you via your Queen's email account, so be sure to continue checking it regularly!


Create a your.name Queen's email alias

By default, Queen's email addresses take the form of NetID@queensu.ca. This can be cryptic and cause confusion for recipients, especially if no signature is provided. To overcome this problem, we highly recommend setting a your.name email alias to make your email address appear as your real name.
