Rutgers NetID Lookup

Rutgers NetID Lookup, powered by Rutgers LDAP, is only available to Rutgers Canvas users who have a Canvas Admin role.

Rutgers NetID Lookup allows Canvas admins to search for directory information for Rutgers NetID users. Rutgers Canvas Admins may search based on the following criteria:

  • Anywhere in Name: Matches any value that begins with the information you provide. You may use partial names, e.g., Quincy instead of John Quincy Adams
  • Last Name: Returns exact match, e.g., De Witt instead of Witt must be searched to return Simeon De Witt.
  • First Name: Returns exact match, e.g., Alexander instead of Alex must be searched to return Alexander Hamilton.
  • Email Address: Only default email addresses will be listed. A user may have multiple addresses so you may need to search by firstname.lastname@rutgers.edu, by netid@rutgers.edu, or by netid@domain.rutgers.edu, e.g., john.smith@rutgers.edujs123@rutgers.edu, or js123@oit.rutgers.edu.
  • NetID: Returns an exact match.
  • Rutgers ID: Returns an exact match.
  • Banner A Number: Returns an exact match.

Search result limitations are:

  • Search is not case-sensitive. Wildcards are not accepted, i.e., Jo* Smith.
  • Search results will only include Rutgers-affiliated faculty, staff, and students. Results will not include all Canvas users.
  • Search results will not contain Rutgers-affiliated faculty, staff, and students who have opted out of directory search or opted out of displaying their email address.
  • Search results are limited to 100. If more than 100 results are returned, an error message will display.
