Hokies ID

Your Hokies ID is a unique ID for current faculty and staff that resides on the central Virginia Tech Windows servers. Your assigned ID belongs to you and you only. This ID and password serve to grant you access to the primary systems: shared computer resources such as file and printer shares, your Exchange email account, and Office 365 services.

Your ID may also grant other local access, depending on systems implemented on your network. It is important to keep in mind that not all Windows systems are in the same trusted relationship tree as the primary servers, thus you may need localized department IDs for some logons across systems. If you are unsure about a system, contact the administrator in your department.
