Connect to Emory

This page will help you accomplish two very important things: accessing your Emory email and accessing OPUS, Emory's student information system.  Scroll down for more information.

Access Your Emory Email

Your Emory email is your official email address. All Emory emails will be sent to that address, and you are responsible for monitoring it. Your email address will be active 10 days after you accept your offer of admission. You need to access it as soon as possible.

Step 1: Retrieve your Network ID (if you have not already done so): go to and click on “Obtain Network ID and Password” (the link is small and just to the right of the Network ID box).  You will be asked for your birth date and social security number (if you do not have a social security number, you will be asked for your birth date and home email address).

Step 2: Change your Password. After you get your Network ID (NetID) and initial password, change your password to something secure that you will remember. From this web page you will also be able to sign up for self-service password reset, which will allow you to reset your password in the future after answering a number of security questions of your own choosing.

Step 3: Access your Emory Email. Official University correspondence will be sent to your Emory email address, the format for which is Your Emory email can be accessed via any web browser. Use your Emory Network ID as the username and your password to login. Your mailbox will be ready and waiting along with collaborative calendaring. 

If you run into problems with your Network ID, password, or email access, contact the University Service Desk at 404-727-7777. Once you arrive on campus, you can always find hands-on IT support at Student Technology Support (STS) in the Woodruff Library, on level 1.

Access OPUS, the Student Information System

OPUS is Emory's online database used for student information and more. You will use OPUS a great deal — for registration, financial information, transcripts, and so on.  This is also where we track your address information: when you move here, you should update your address in OPUS. 

Log in to OPUS with your NetID and password, and check your information.  The information we have comes from your application, and some of that may have changed.  Update as needed.  Note that the phone number in your OPUS record will appear in Emory's online directory.  If you are concerned about that, read the document posted on the right, which explains how the connection works and spells out what you can do to control that.
