UPDATE: Login Name Format Change from username @ sfsu.edu to SF-State-9-digit-ID @ sfsu.edu (starting Saturday, May 28, 2022, at 3p.m.)


To improve user experience across multiple cloud services and better position the campus for future improvements, ITS will introduce a new login name format in the form of SF-State-9-digit-ID @ sfsu.edu. This will enable users to maintain consistency across all system logins and will simplify account provisioning. Starting Saturday, May 28, 2022, at 3 p.m., ITS will migrate all SF State user accounts from username @ sfsu.edu to SF-State-9-digit-ID @ sfsu.edu. This update will be made in campus Active Directory (AD). We anticipate this will take approximately 72 hours to complete.

What Can You Expect

Please note that email addresses will NOT change. During this update you can use all services with no disruption.


Use your SF-State-9-digit-ID @ sfsu.edu for SF State owned computers.


Your email address or SF-State-9-digit-ID can be used, but we recommend using your SF-State-9-digit-ID @ sfsu.edu as all services will eventually use that exclusively.


If you experience issues or need assistance, please contact the ITS Service Desk at service@sfsu.edu or 415-338-1420.
