  • Claiming your myNortheastern account enables you to access not only myNortheastern but also sign into a Northeastern-managed computer and (if granted) your @northeastern.edu e-mail using the same username and password.
  • Due to the sensitive nature of the information you will enter while claiming your account, ITS recommends NOT using a public or shared computer.
