Account Policies

The Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering provides computing system access to all individuals who are enrolled in courses offered by the ECE department, as well as to faculty and staff employed by the department. This access is meant to be used only for ECE academic and research purposes – commercial use is prohibited.


Login Issues

The ECE department no longer maintains a separate ECE account infrastructure. Logging into ECE computers uses your UW account information (NetID and Password). Please note that access to many ECE computing systems is restricted – even if you have a NetID, you may not have permission to log into a particular system.


Changing Your Password

The ECE department no longer maintains a separate ECE account infrastructure. This means the password you use on ECE systems is the same one you use everywhere else at UW – your NetID password.


How Do I Get An ECE Account?

The ECE department no longer maintains a separate ECE account infrastructure. Your NetID does need to be affiliated with ECE groups, but that should happen automatically. Please see https://peden.ece.uw.edu/computing/faq/do-i-need-an-ece-account/ for more information.


Do I need an “ECE Account”?

If you are taking classes in ECE, or working in one of our research labs, you may hear someone say you need an “ECE computing account”. So what exactly is that, you ask?
