UWB Access Account

Attention: This page updated September 25th, 2015. Please read carefully.

Service Overview: UWB Access Accounts

A UWB Access Account is a supplemental account that is separate from a standard UW NetID. It is not necessary for many employees, especially many faculty. All UW employees, including student employees, have a standard UW NetID that can be used for logging on to workstations, accessing email, printing, utilizing online resources (such as OneDrive or Google Drive), and many other UW provided services.

A UWB Access Account is only required to access the local UWB File Servers (Department Shares), to edit UWB website pages ( , and to access other specialized computing systems. Although it can be used to logon to UWB workstations, the standard UW NetID account can be used for that purpose as well. It is available to all faculty, staff, and student employees of the University of Washington Bothell as needed.

Important note on Email:  UWBIT no longer provisions independent email, and a UWB Access Account does not include email. The UWB campus has standardized on the use of UW NetID addresses ( with UW Office 365 mailboxes for email. New UWB employees may be required to convert their UW NetID email to UW Office 365. Please discuss this standard with your UWB employees, and direct them to Email Service at UWB for more information on Email at the UWB campus and how to request UW Office 365.
