A Stanford University Network Identifier (SUNet ID) provides access to the Stanford University Network (SUNet) and its electronic services, such as Axess, Stanford’s online enrollment interface, as well as a Stanford email account, web services, and more.
You can only create a SUNet ID after you have received your Stanford ID number from the Summer Session office. Your Stanford ID number will be sent via email. Once you received your ID number, go to the SUNet ID webpage and click on the icon next to the header “Create a new SUNet ID.” Then click the button “I am faculty, staff, or student.” Once your SUNet is selected, it cannot be changed. The SUNet ID is also part of your Stanford email address and web home page (for example, the SUNet ID “jdoe” would become the email address, firstname.lastname@example.org). Access to online University services, including Axess, will be available 24 hours after the creation of the SUNet ID.
The Summer Session Office is unable to troubleshoot issues relating to your SUNet ID. If you experience issues with your SUNet you will need to submit a ServiceNow ticket.
