  • Example MEDID for faculty, staff, residents, and other COM affiliates: jane.smith
  • Example COM username for students: jas16a

FSUID for Off-Campus Access

As of September 1, 2016, FSU University Libraries requires the FSUID to log into library resources from off campus.

What does this mean? Off-campus users sign on with their FSUID credentials. Examples of the FSUID are jas16a or jsmith (BUT NOT jane.smith).

What if I have questions? Please review our FSUID FAQs. If you have further questions about the FSUID, you can submit them here:
