Activate Your OHIO ID

Your OHIO ID and password are your keys to most online services at Ohio University. If you are new to the university or returning after an extended absence, you will need to activate your OHIO ID.

Before following the activation link below, make sure you have your PID. This number can be found on your University ID card. New students, your PID will be on your letter of admission.

If you have any problems activating your OHIO ID, please contact the Service Desk at 740-593-1222 or

If you are a faculty/staff member who is also enrolled for classes, you will have both a faculty/staff OHIO ID and a student OHIO ID. To avoid missing any class-related messages, you should activate your student OHIO ID.
