A primary NetLink ID is your online identification at the University of Victoria. A primary NetLink ID is a unique personal identifier which is used as your username for various services provided by UVic. University Systems recommends that all UVic students, faculty, and staff register for a NetLink ID. Your NetLink ID is your gateway to UVic systems and services for which you are authorized, such as Online tools.

Create a primary NetLink ID

Go to to sign up for a NetLink ID. When you sign up for a NetLink ID, you can also sign up for an email address and web space if you are current faculty, staff, or student. Applicants can apply for a NetLink ID but will have limited access to campus resources. Only one primary NetLink ID is permitted per individual.

In order to sign up for a NetLink ID, you must provide some personal information, including your V-Number (legacy student numbers will not work). If you are a student or alumni seeking a NetLink ID, please contact the Office of the Registrar to obtain your V-Number; if you are an employee, contact Payroll/HRIS.
