Help please...

<p>ok, so I'm pretty sure everyone has gotten their net Id, but I don't know where we got them from and how I am supposed to find it now (I need it for housing, right?). I have my UID, but not my Net ID. When and where do I find my Net ID? Please answer if you have the time, thanks in advance.</p>

<p>"If you're a student, you will receive instructions for claiming your NetID and setting your NetID password. (If you did not receive this information, please contact the CITES Help Desk)."</p>

<p>Your</a> Network ID (NetID)</p>

<p>For housing, you need to send in a housing contract with a deposit. Unless things have changed, you won't get that NetID until you go to a summer orientation session.</p>

<p>I think they have changed a bit; I apparently need to send in my acceptance before they give me the Net ID I need for housing. I'm rather worried since I think it's first come, first serve and I haven't made my decision about attending yet.</p>

<p>was the page to create a netid. Though I accepted before I attempted to create it so don't know if that's necessary.</p>

<p>I didn't even accept the offer of admission yet and got a NetID. You do have to do a little fishing around the UIUC website (somewhere in financial aid) until you get to a page where you can use your UID to sign up for one. It didn't do me any good though. I was hoping to check if I got any scholarships but so far my financial aid status is blank.</p>

<p>EDIT: Never mind. The guy above me just found it by the time I finished typing this.</p>

<p>I do not believe you can sign up for housing without first sending in your acceptance of an offer of admission. (gotta say you're attending UIUC before you can do anything housing-related)</p>
