Need to update your directory information?
Most information contained in the campus directory is information you need to update yourself. The only data the campus directory pulls automatically from the HR system is your home department. All other contact information, such as your title, address, and phone number needs to be entered and updated by you directly. To update your directory information, please visit our Directory Update Page.
Resetting your CalNetKey?
Verify the answers to your security questions or visit a CalNet Deputy or the Cal 1 Card office.
Logging in to a specific application?
You can verify to see if there is a specific problem with your CalNet ID, by going to the Test CalNet ID page. If you are able to authenticate successfully, this means your CalNet ID is active, but the application you are attempting to use does not recognize it. If this is the case, you will need to contact the department that manages the application directly. Check on the application website for support contact information.
