What is an ASURITE Account?

An ASURITE Account (The Arizona State University Rational Information Technology Environment) is the primary login for ASU computing services. Every person at ASU is assigned an ASURITE UserID. This UserID is unique and is yours to use as long as you are associated with the University and you follow the appropriate policies and guidelines (known as ACD 125).

The ASURITE UserID is used to access various services at ASU. Your eligibility for services will depend on your affiliation with ASU. New student applicants, for example, may have access to certain Web pages to check the status of their application or to register online once they have been admitted. Enrolled students, faculty, and staff will be able to add other computing services, as needed, to their UserID.

Because the ASURITE UserID is used for such a wide variety of access, including sensitive information such as your grades, it is important to protect your password. Do not share it with others. Change your password frequently. Pick passwords that are difficult to guess.

What is my ASURITE UserID?

Your ASURITE UserID is an auto-generated username based on your actual name. It is 5-8 characters in length. The typical format is the first letter of your first name plus as many characters of your last name (surname) as can fit. (i.e. jsmith) Your UserID may vary from that format if someone else already has that UserID. (i.e. jsmith2)

How do I get an ASURITE ID?


Your ASURITE UserID will be created at the time of application and you will receive an email with account activation information.


Your ASURITE UserID will be created at the time your employment is entered into the Human Resources system. This should happen soon after you accept the offer of employment. You will receive an email with account activation information.
