Your Yale Net ID

Beginning May 10, Summer Session will be sending admitted students email messages containing their Yale NetID, activation PIN and instructions. Students will need to activate the Net ID in order to access important information online before and during the summer session.

Note: You will need your Yale Net ID to access the ID card photo upload page & the Classes*v2/Canvas learning management system.

Yale Student ID Card

In order to have your ID card ready when you arrive to campus, you must electronically submit a color passport photo.  Beginning mid May, visit the ID card center web page for instructions.  If you are unable to submit a photo electronically, you may mail one to the ID center by following the instructions on the same web site. Students studying in Session A are requested to submit photos by May 24 in order to guarantee adequate processing time, and June 21 for Session B and the English Language Institute. Students living off campus can pick up their ID card Monday-Friday during normal business hours.


You may check your web based email on any Yale computer. If you do not currently have a web-based email account, you may wish to sign up for free, web-based email such as Yahoo or Gmail. Yale does not provide email accounts to summer students.


Any student with a car should obtain a weekly or monthly parking permit from Yale University Parking and Transit. Overnight parking on the streets of New Haven is prohibited by local ordinance.
