Important Information Regarding Your NetID

  • Memorize your NetID and password!
  • Do not have someone else create your NetID and password.
  • You must be admitted to UNM before you can get a NetID.
  • When you create a NetID, a UNM email account is automatically created for you in this format: <your netid>@unm.edu.
