How to set up network access

The online network account set up process helps simplify your upcoming arrival to Acadia. To set up your account and register your computer, you login through your Acadia Central account (the same one you use to register online or check your application status). If you forget, or don't know your password, select Forgot Password? and it will be emailed to you.

Students will be granted access to the Acadia network once you are registered and have paid your tuition fees. If you have not made payment of your first term fees by the fee deadline date your network access will expire a week later. Should this happen you will not be able to login to the network, access Acorn, the Library or your Acadia email. To ensure this doesn't happen, please make your arrangements to pay your fees with Student Accounts.
Fee deadlines can be found on the Student Accounts website:


Setting up your network access

Go to, and follow the steps.
Here, you can:

  • Set up your Acadia Network Account.
  • Set up Security Questions. These are used by the Service Desk when requesting assistance over the phone.
  • Register your laptop for use on the campus network (you must be on campus to complete this step)
  • Get your Acadia Axcess Card. You can submit your photo online to Safety and Security for your ID card. Please follow the submission rules carefully. All students are required to have an ID card - this card admits you to Acadia events, is the key for your residence, and allows you to access Library resources.
