BlueNet Account and Passwords
Your BlueNet Account is a unique username and password which is used to access computing services both on and off campus. This is the only account you need to access most of our computer resources. Along with your BlueNet account, you will receive personal network storage space (M: drive) and a CCSU email account. Your BlueNet account password is synchronized with your CCSU email / Office 365 account.
How to Access:
Your BlueNet Account is used to access computing services on and off campus:
- campus computers in classrooms, labs, and offices
- resources via CentralPipeline, including WebCentral-Banner Web and Blackboard Learn
- CCSU employee email
- campus wireless network
- remote application server (Citrix)
- On-line Card Office
- many web-based systems for faculty/staff, such as the Copy Center Online and WebNow
How to Request:
For Faculty and Staff: A supervisor must request a BlueNet account for a new employee using the online New Employee BlueNet Account Request System. In addition, all employees are required to sign the Acceptable Use Policy as part of the hiring process through Human Resources or Business Services.
For Students: Students can create and activate their own BlueNet account by using the Accounts Management system at the following address: https://accounts.ccsu.edu/wacctmgt/. For detailed information and instructions, visit http://www.ccsu.edu/it/itservices/bluenet_account.html.
