Computer account and password

Each student has a unique user identity called Chalmers ID (shortened CID). This account is used to get access to Chalmers IT resources. You receive your user information during your first week. Please contact the IT-support if you have not received any.


When you recieve your Chalmers ID you also get a password. Your password can be changed at any time (see below). Each user is responsible for their account, it is therefore important that you keep your password secret and store it safely. Do NOT send your password to the IT-support (nor to anyone else).

CID/net account

This separate account is used to connect to certain services (such as NOMAD) and has a separate password. To change this password see instructions below. Note that this account is different from NET\ and @net-accounts!. 

Lost or forgotten password

If you have lost or forgotten your password, you must visit the IT-support and bring a valid ID to get a new scratch card and a new password. IT-support

Change password

To change your CID password or CID / net password, do the following:

  • Navigate to Chalmers' person database (PDB)
  • Click CID or other accounts in the left column
  • Type your CID, the old password, and then the new password twice
  • Click Change Password

Try again

If you receive an error message that you cannot change password - please, try again. Otherwise the change of password may have been implemented in parts of the system and then your account will not work. Check the instructions for what is required in the password (which characters, how many etc.)
