SUNY New Paltz Username and Password

All students are assigned a New Paltz Computer Username which consists of up to the first seven characters of your last name, the first character of your first name plus a number (NOTE: some Alumni will have a BannerID (N number) for a username).  Your New Paltz Username is required in order to access a variety of SUNY New Paltz technology resources, including:

  • Brightspace (Digital Learning Environment)
  • Computer Lab Access
  • Printing and Wireless Printing
  • Wired and Wireless Authentication for your devices
  • Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI)
  • Off-campus Library Database Access (including films on demand)

Note: as of July 4th, 2021 - you will need to use your <username> + when logging into most campus services.  For example, if your username is "hawk01" you would login with "" whenever you see the login screen below.  This is true even for alumni who no longer have email with the college.
