What are my username and password?

An employee Username is automatically generated when appointment transactions for employees are posted in the CUBS system. Each new employee receives a letter from Computer Resources that explains how to use the Username and various resources. Passwords for new employee Usernames are set by default to the last five digits of the employee's social security number and can be reset by each user.

How do I set up and access email?

Clemson University's primary email system for employee communications is Microsoft Outlook Exchange. Google Apps for Education is also offered through Gmail as an alternative. Users can access Outlook through a local client (Outlook, Apple Mail, etc.) on their machine or through the web at Google Apps for Education can be set up from the Clemson Email forwarding page.

What is two-factor authentication (Duo)?

Passwords are essential for security and privacy, but they are often not enough. Two-factor authentication requires something you know (your Clemson password) and something you have (like a mobile phone, landline phone or the Duo smartphone app) as an added layer of security to prevent anyone else from accessing your account. Two-factor authentication is the most effective method of account takeover prevention, helping to protect both you and the Clemson community.

How do I get help from IT?

You can get help from IT by entering a help ticket. It is very advantageous to enter a ticket yourself because you will receive all responses regarding the IT issue. Because tickets in the ITHelp system are generated under the username that submits the ticket/request, if you allow someone else such as an Admin Assistant to enter the ticket, you will not get the initial request for support or any responses on your issue. A help ticket can be entered by emailing or by going to the web version at

What is the Network Registration System (netreg)?

The Network Registration System (netreg) is in place to manage the different network-capable pieces of electronic equipment that each person may find themselves using at Clemson University. In order for a user to connect to the campus network, they must first register that piece of equipment's MAC address with the system in order for it to be recognized and tied to a specific person. In case there is an issue, such as a virus, that person can be contacted directly. For a laptop which has an ethernet connection and has a wireless connection, you will have to register both connections.

There are two ways to get hardware registered. The first is the MAC address can be put in manually by going to and adding a registration. The second way is, with any new piece of equipment such as a laptop, desktop, tablet, cellphone, etc., when attempting to access the internet by Ethernet or wireless, you will need to open a browser to register the device. Once the browser is open, a purple website is opened titled "Network Registration." Click "Go," fill out the device description and accept the University's network use policy. Be sure to read the policy and where it says "Device Description," enter your Clemson username, type of equipment (laptop, desktop, tablet, iPhone) and whether it is ethernet or wireless (e.g., your name, laptop, wireless). Then click "Accept" and restart the device.

Also on this website, users can view all their registered pieces of equipment and delete old ones if necessary.

What wireless network does Clemson use?

Eduroam (Education Roaming) is the primary secure wireless network available to faculty, staff and students. Eduroam uses WPA2 technology for enhanced security. Eduroam can be found not only on Clemson's main campus but also many of the University's satellite areas such as Clemson at the Falls and ICAR.

What makes Eduroam different from other wireless networks? Eduroam is a portable wireless network connection where users can connect to networks at other participating colleges and universities. While visiting, Eduroam users will no longer have to request access to that particular site's network. Users can access their devices, and their machine will automatically get a network connection.

Reminder: If you are prompted to log into Eduroam, your username is your full email address (e.g.,
