Your OUNet ID is a computer user account that provides access to many of the computer network resources on the university campus. Each employee at the university is assigned a computer user account.

To access your OUNet account, you will need to know your OUNet ID or username (sometimes referred to as your "4 plus 4"). The OUNet account is created with the first 4 letters of your last name (lowercase) plus (+) the last 4 digits of your 9-digit Sooner ID number.

For example, if your last name is Sooner and your 9-digit OU ID number is 123-45-6789, then your OUNetID will be soon6789. If your last name has only 3 or less then characters,your OUNet ID will be all of the letters in your last name plus the last four numbers of your OU ID number.

For more information about the OUNet ID, contact Information Technology's computer help desk at 325-HELP (4357).
