You’ll need a NetID to access campus computer applications and services. If you activate your NetID prior to your start date, you’ll be a step ahead on your first day. Contact your department payroll coordinator if you’d like to initiate Early Activation. Start at the NetID website—https://kb.wisc.edu/page.php?id=12371—for NetID activation instructions.
Your official campus photo ID card—Wiscard—allows access to campus services such as libraries, recreation facilities, and purchases. Start at the Wiscard website—wiscard.wisc.edu—for activation instructions.
