BeachID Account

Available To

Students and Employees

Service Overview

Each authorized CSULB student and employee has a BeachID Account. A BeachID Account consists of a nine-digit "username" (typically, your Campus ID) and your password, which prove you're affiliated with the University and enable you to use CSULB computing services. Access to specific campus systems is based on your role within the University.  BeachID accounts are generated automatically when new affiliations are created, such as when students are first matriculated and when employees are hired.
