Campus Accounts

Until there is a Five College ID card, you will need to get an ID on each campus. Here’s where to go the first time and also who to call if you’re having trouble:


In your first semester teaching at Amherst, you will need a form from HR in order to get an ID card made. Take the form to the ID office in Valentine Hall, and they will give you your card.

For general help with IT matters, call the help desk at (413)542-2526 or email them at AskIT. There is also an extensive IT Knowledge Base.
