Is anyone else having trouble accessing their NYU Net ID? I went to the NYU website and used the University ID number that they sent me in the "InfoPack" a few weeks ago, entered my birthdate and email, and then got a message that "Only current members of the NYU community are eligible to use this function." Don't I need that Net ID to access the Housing registry and send in my Housing Interest Form?

I called the help number on that site, and the operator said I wasn't in the system becoz I hadn't registered for classes or housing yet (um, DUH), and once I register for housing/classes, I'll be in the system and able to activate the Net ID. But... I can't register for anything without that Net ID, it seems.

I'm confused. Help.

I didn't have any problems accessing my NetID or setting up my NYU email. I can't think of what the problem is, maybe you're entering something wrong or maybe it's a problem out of your control.

Good luck.

mine worked just fine. All you can really do with it now is set up your email account anyways.

mine worked, however it wouldn't let me into the computer store to check out laptops, etc. I called and the guy I talked to said that this is a common problem and to just use "med1" as the login id.

I had the same problem.

After the third try, it let me in.

Same for me. I haven't been able to sign on either, I have yet to call them though.
