Welcome to the Long Island University! This list is meant to provide you with a quick glance at some of the many digital resources you may need as a staff member at LIU and to direct you to answers to any questions you may have. Of course it is by no means an exhaustive list, so if you have suggestions for something you think staff should know about, email it@liu.edu.

We also provide guides for staff and students.

Campus Information Services


Many University services require you to log in using your LIU ID — which you received on your first day. The first time you log in to my.liu.edu, you will use the LIU ID. You will be prompted to answer security questions and set a permanent password.

The Campus Information Services site contains a variety of key areas, including areas for class tools, grades, library research tools, and more.

LIU Email

 icon-liu-email All faculty members have access to a LIU email account. This is one of the primary ways the University will contact staff and share important information or alerts. Log in to LIU Email at webapps.liu.edu. It’s recommended that new users create an email alias that follows a firstname.lastname@liu.edu format.


 icon-blackboard Blackboard is the official Learning Management System of the Long Island Univeristy, where you can view your courses, add course content for students, and more. You can access Canvas by visiting this page and logging in with your uNID and CIS password, or by selecting “Blackboard” on the main page of it.liu.edu.
