webcampus

Fairleigh Dickinson University offers a variety of technological resources and services for students. This guide will help students navigate the different tools to access and manage their accounts or information.

ID and Email

  • Your FDU NetID

    Your FDU NetID verifies who you are and ensures the privacy of your personal information. Your FDU NetID and your NetID password will provide access to a variety of IT resources including your Self-Service, WebCampus, Office365, and Email. To get your NetID, review the guide on how to Claim or Create an FDU NetID Account.

  • Changing your FDU NetID Password

    To protect the University and our students from cyber attacks and other malicious activity, we require that everyone in our community to periodically change their password. To change your password, review the guide on How To Change Your FDU NetID Password.

  • Cisco DUO Multifactor Authentication

    To successfully use your NetID to access your accounts, you will need Two-Factor Authentication with Cisco DUO MFA

    Two-factor authentication adds a second layer of security to your FDU NetID. It requires two factors to verify identity. These factors include something you know – your FDU NetID and password, and something you have – a phone or passcode, to authenticate and gain access to your account on FDU services. Passwords alone no longer provide adequate protection against cyber hacking. DUO is required for all current FDU students.

    Review the Duo – Student Quick Start Guide to set up your mobile device with Cisco DUO MFA, and look at the Cisco Duo FAQ’s to get more information about Cisco DUO MFA.

  • Email and Office 365

    Students can access their emails through any Web browser using their NetID and password to log in. To access our email, visit the Office Portal Login.

    Students can also access their FDU Email accounts on their mobile devices by installing the Outlook app. Read the guide below:

    Current students who are registered for classes for the current term, or a future term have access to Microsoft Office 365 Suite applications. For more information, click on the links below:

This is a handy little “cheat-sheet” for students, faculty and staff who are trying to understand some of the computer lingo used on campus.  The terms that seem to cause the most confusion for most people all start with the string “Web”.  That is not surprising because there are two systems that start with “Web”: Webcampus and Webmail.

Webcampus

Webcampus is a course content management system. FDU’s Webcampus is also known as the Blackboard System. On-line courses are taught through this system which also allows for interaction between the student and faculty member as well as on-line class discussions. Webcampus is handled by the Center for Teaching and Learning with Technology department. The Organization feature in Webcampus is used by many faculty and staff members of the University. To access the Webcampus system, an individual must have a Webmail account. Any questions or problems with Webcampus should be funneled through the Help Desk. The Help Desk can be reached by phone at 973-443-8822 or via email to fdutac@fdu.edu .

Webmail

Webmail is FDU’s email system and is a means of electronic communication among all faculty, staff and students, as well as off-campus individuals. It is important that every student have an FDU email account since an FDU email account is a pre-requisite of attaining a Webadvisor or Webcampus account. The FDU email system is handled by the University Systems and Security Department. Any questions or problems with Webmail should be funneled through the Help Desk. The Help Desk can be reached by phone at (973)-443-8822 or via email to fdutac@fdu.edu.
