Accounts Overview

After decades of service, the DUNX1 system and services will be retired on Thursday, June 30, 2022. See our News page.

Computer accounts are the key to electronic services at Drexel; virtually all resources require a current user-id and password to access them. Drexel IT provides accounts for all university-wide resources to students, faculty, and staff. Other departments may issue accounts used to access their own services.

All accounts issued by IT use the same "user ID" made up of your initials followed by a number. When your accounts are first set up they will all use the same password, but you can change each account's password individually.

Drexel accounts are organized into three main groups: Common, Add-On, and Administrative Accounts.

Common Accounts

Common Accounts are automatically issued to students and Drexel-paid faculty, professional staff.

Account Name Used For
Drexel Domain Access to secured computers, file servers, Office 365*, SharePoint sites, and other Windows-based services

*This includes Office 365 apps and (email, contacts, and groups)

Add-On Accounts

Add-On Accounts are provided upon request. Eligibility restrictions apply.

Account Name Used For
All Students, Faculty, and Professional Staff
Personal file space (100 MB), personal website, general-purpose Unix shell, secure file transfer, and secure shell access

Administrative Accounts

Administrative Accounts are used to access university-wide business systems. They are only provided to employees with specific business needs and must be requested by a department head.

These systems use an Oracle (Internet Native Banner) password. For inquiries such as password resets or to schedule training, please consult your administrative contact or the system administrator.
