The U of S Network Services ID (NSID), or user name, is a unique identifier that is three letters followed by three numbers (e.g. abc123).
It is used as a username to access university computer and network services such as PAWS, email, computer labs and password protected webpages. The services that you are eligible for depend on your role at the university (student, instructor, researcher, employee alumnus, etc.)
Your NSID is automatically created for you when you become a student, instructor, researcher, employee or otherwise connected with USask.
