Campus Domain Account Required

A Campus Domain Account is required to access some services on this page. To change or reset your password, use the Stevens Password Service.

Graduate students do not have campus domain accounts created automatically and MUST REQUEST ONE.
The request must be COMPLETED before any system can be accessed with the account.

  • Username: username or campus\username where username is your Stevens username.
  • Password: The default password varies depending on your role and entry date at Stevens.
  1. Faculty & Staff: Passwords are randomly generated, please contact the HelpDesk.
  2. Students who entered before February 2009: The default password is StevensYYMMDD where YYMMDD corresponds to your date of birth.
  3. Students who entered after February 2009: The default password is Stevens000000 where 000000 corresponds to the last 6 digits of your Campus Wide ID Number.
  • Domain: If prompted for a Logon Domain, CAMPUS should be entered.


The following tutorial was done on a machine running OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard). Other versions of OS X use most of the same procedures and actions to map a network drive.


Step 1 - Open Map Dialogue

  • Select Finder by clicking on your desktop wallpaper
  • Open the Go menu and select Connect to Server

Step 2 - Enter the Drive Name

  • Type smb:// into the Server Address field, where share is the drive on storage01 that you are trying to connect to.
    • NOTE: You MUST replace the word sharename with the share you're trying to map (eg. public, ms, your username).
    • Clicking the + button will add the share to your favorite servers list for easy access in the future.
  • Click Connect to connect to storage01. The connection will then prompt you for your credentials.

Step 3 - Enter Campus Domain Account Information

  • If there is a Workgroup or Domain field, type CAMPUS.
  • Type your Stevens username into the Name field.
  • Type your Campus Domain Account Password into the Password field.
  • After clicking OK you can access the mapped drive from your desktop, as seen below.
  • After clicking OK you can access the mapped drive from your desktop, as seen below.
  • After clicking OK you can also access the mapped drive using the Finder application, as seen below.
