On March 9th, 2011, Queen's University changed the way that we deliver online services to students and alumni - the SOLUS Student Centre.
SOLUS is a Gaelic word that means "knowledge and light". It also stands for "Student On Line University System."
Because many new students will not be familiar with the new system, we have prepared an easy to use tutorial that will explain how to access SOLUS, and how to order services from it.
In order to login to the SOLUS Student Centre, you will be asked to provide your NetID and password.
Some alumni may not remember their NetID, while others may never have been issued one while they were students.
The NetID is an issued combination of letters and numbers which is unique to each student. Think of it as your individual passkey to unlocking online services from Queen's.
If you don't have a NetID, you can activate one by going to http://netid.queensu.ca/activate
This utility will require two things - one of which is your Student ID Number. If you do not remember your Student ID Number, you can contact the Office of the University Registrar at 613.533.2040, and our staff will be able to assist you.
If you have your NetID, and don't remember your password, you can do either of the following:

In order to help users be able to allow pop-ups, an instruction sheet has been produced that lists the steps involved. The document lists the steps for each of the web browser formats mentioned above, for both the Mac and PC computing environments:
