As of March 14th, 2014, Metropolitan State has completed its migration to StarID. If you cannot remember your StarID password, or need technical assistance, the quickest and easiest way to get information is via the StarID Self Service portal.

Note: All students and university employees are affected by this change!

You will need StarID to:

  • Login to your computer on the network
  • Access your e-mail
  • Access Library Resources
  • Login to D2L
  • Access the university wireless network
  • Login to the Portal


The following is a list of some of the systems that are used within the university.  If you have questions regarding a specific software or service, contact IT Services at it.desk@metrostate.edu.
