Where do I get my Salem State Username?

Student Usernames

Salem State identifies a student username with the letter S, followed by a student identification number, or student ID. Computer-generated student IDs are issued to students who:

  • Applied to the university to be a full-time student
  • Take a course as a non-matriculated or a non-credit student
  • Took a course or attended years ago

To find your student ID, go to Navigator Login and click on Account Help. Salem State usernames can be used to log into Navigator, WiFi, email, and Canvas. 

Your student ID may no longer be active in the system. Contact the Student Navigation Center or call 978.542.8000 if you can't reset your password.

Faculty and Staff Usernames

Upon your hiring, you will be entered into our employee management system and issued a username. Your username is the first initial of your first name and your full last name, up to 14 characters. If the username has been assigned to another, the next number in the sequence is added to the username. For contractors (ctr_), volunteers (vol_), and student employees (stu_), your username is preceded by the first three letters of the employee category followed by an underscore and your username.

Depending on what service you are signing on to, you may need to use either your full email address or just your first initial and last name. If one doesn't work, please try the other.
