A computer account is an assigned username and password that allows a Marshall University student, faculty, or staff to access MUnet (the Marshall University computing network). MUnet provides the user with access a variety of software (word processors, web browsers, etc.) and services (electronic mail, personal web pages, etc.).
To obtain an account, you can either simply verify your personal info (SSN) via telephone or come to the Service Desk on the 1st floor of the Drinko Library with a photo ID.
All registered students are automatically assigned a computer account. All accounts consist of a username (up to 12 characters long) based on your last name and a randomly generated password.
Your account is also used as your Email Address.
