My First Login

Congratulations and Welcome to MSU Denver!

Please take a minute to set up your MSU Denver NetID Account and Password

Information Technology Services provides access to many of the tools you will use during your time at MSU Denver. Most of these accounts are single sign-on, and setting up your password now will simplify getting logged in to register for classes, check your email, and manage your student/staff account.

Before you begin...

Find your acceptance letter or employment offer letter in your personal email inbox. This contains your student or staff ID (900 number). You will need this in order to complete the login process.


  1. Look up your MSU Denver NetID and Password.
    • Go to the initial look-up page.
    • Select Option 1 for students, or Option 2 for staff.
    • Enter your Student/Staff ID number – or 900 number, as most Roadrunners call it.

      • Please check the "Signing up for Office 365 account recovery" page for instructions.
    • Once your account recovery options are set up, follow the prompts to set up multi-factor authentication.
