Welcome to Viterbo University! 



Before proceeding to lookup your Viterbo username/e-mail, please make note of the following: 

  1. All students receive a Viterbo username (used to access Moodle & VitNet Self Service).
  2. Accounts are composed of the first letter of the first name, up to the first five letters of the last name, and an assigned five digit number (which is generated automatically upon registration).                                                                       
  3. Your Username is required to login/access campus lab PCs, E-mail, Moodle, VitNet Self Service, Printing, Library Systems, and Wireless Access). “@viterbo.edu” is not included in the username when logging in.
  4. Your email account is used by the university and your instructors to communicate important information to you. Be sure to check it on a regular basis!
    • Your email address is your username + @viterbo.edu (i.e. username@viterbo.edu).
  5. Default Password is composed of the last four digits of SSN, the month/day of your birthday and *MyVU added at the end, which creates a 13-digit alpha/numeric/symbol password. If you do not have a SSN, then use 9999.

    Once you have logged in, you are encouraged to change your password. Instructions located here: www.viterbo.edu/passwordinfo

    When changing your password, it must be 13 digits, and contain at least 3 of 4 characters (upper/lower/number/symbol).
