Lehigh computing accounts provide access to a large variety of LTS and other services. You will use these account credentials to access most Lehigh services, including G Suite (email, calendar, cloud storage), Banner (registration, compensation), and Course Site (our Moodle-based Learning Management System). 

If you have just been admitted to Lehigh, you should follow the link provided in the enrollment portal:

If you are a Faculty or Staff member, Visitor, Temporary Contractor, or Vendor, your personal email address will be registered in our system, and then you can go to https://accounts.lehigh.edu/new to request a temporary password be generated and emailed to you.  With that temporary password and your username you can use https://accounts.lehigh.edu/change to setup your account and password. 

The process for new accounts includes first creating 3 security questions and answers which will allow you to reset your password if you forget it.  Please select questions that you know the answer to, but are not guessable. 

Then, you'll need to create a password for everyday use on your Lehigh account, which meets the following requirements:

  • Is 8 characters long, but longer is better.  A multi-word passphrase is best.
  • Contains at least 1 non-letter character (number or symbol).   

After the password is entered and verified, the system will begin pushing the new password out to various directory services including our Microsoft Active Directory system, and our campus LDAP servers (SSO).  Once these have been provisioned and synchronized, you'll be able to use your account to login. 

You will likely also need to configure DUO 2FA with your account to add additional factor(s) to protect your account.  Duo provides a number of methods including mobile push, touch id, hardware tokens, text messages and calls. 

A reminder on the last page will also display information about our emergency alert system, HawkWatch, which can send voice and text messages to a cellphone number, and a mobile app.  The system is used for critical alerts and safety information, as well as other services of the LU Police Department.  

Your password will need to be changed periodically and the next date will be displayed on the last page.  Email reminders will be sent to your Lehigh email account to remind you.
