A Mason NetID (username) is a unique personal identifier that enables you to access online systems that use the Patriot Pass Password Management System. It serves as your login to many university computing and networking services and also determines your Mason email address, which is NetID@gmu.edu.
Your Mason NetID is:
- Entered, along with a password, to access various online Mason systems
- Not the same as your G Number
- Has a password associated with it that you manage
For more information on choosing an effective password and keeping it secure, see the Strong Passwords page.
