How Do I Log In?

Log in to the network

When a Windows computer is first booted or another user has logged out, the Login Box appears, type your Login Name and Password. Click OK. If you don't see it there, use Ctrl+Alt+Del keys simultaneously and then log-in using your CWU credentials.

A Macintosh should have a small TREE icon in the top right corner of the Desktop. Click on this and select Log in. The information required is the same as displayed above. If this icon is not there, please contact the Service Desk.

If you are prompted for a domain, please use CWU.

Login name

This is the username provided to you by your department secretary or through Information Services. It will look like JSmith. For logging into a non-domain joined resource, you will need to specify your domain as CWU. For example - or cwu\jsmith.

If your passwor​d expires

If you receive notification by email of your password expiring, please visit and change it. Be sure to reset your recovery questions/answers while you are there.

When You Are Finished Using Your Account

When you are finished using the computer, please BE SURE TO LOG OUT to ensure that no one else has access to your data and mail.
