Such services include computer applications and computer lab log-in privileges, online course management platforms (Sakai at OHSU and D2L at PSU), file sharing systems (OneDrive at OHSU and Google Drive at PSU), and online holdings at both libraries.

Campus Network / Online Access

OHSU Network

OHSU’s Information Technology Group (ITG) generates and maintains OHSU network accounts and access. To maintain OHSU network access, students must complete Information Privacy and Security Essentials training annually, even when on leave of absence, in the field, or not otherwise using OHSU resources.

The training course is available in OHSU’s online learning management system – Compass.

Students who do not complete the annual training will lose access to the OHSU network. Students’ network access expires 24 hours after graduation date, except that email access continues for 90 days after graduation date.

PSU Network

PSU’s Office of Information Technology (OIT) oversees students’ PSU ODIN accounts, in partnership with the PSU Registrar’s Office.

Your PSU ODIN account will remain active as long as you are attending or working at PSU. After the end of your last term as a student or your last day of employment, your account will no longer be considered active. Student accounts have a grace period before being disabled.

For more information about account expiration and grace periods, see the Odin Account Standard.

Two-Factor Authentication (Duo)

Both OHSU and PSU employ two-factor authentication, via the Duo app, to provide extra login security for some services, such as the PSU Virtual Private Network (VPN) or OHSU’s webmail. In order to access these systems, you’ll combine your login information with a secondary credential delivered through your phone or tablet. This prevents anyone else from signing in, even if they know your password.


School of Public Health graduate students have email accounts at both OHSU and PSU.  Students must check both accounts regularly; these are the only email addresses the universities and School will use to communicate with you.

Email is accessible via the web from within university networks or through internet. Duo two-step authentication is required for accessing OHSU or PSU email outside the corresponding network.

Tips For Managing Your Email Accounts

You may link your OHSU and PSU email accounts by auto-forwarding your PSU email to your OHSU account. Because of OHSU’s security settings, it is not possible to auto-forward your OHSU email to your PSU account.

PSU uses Google/Gmail for email services. You can sync components of your Google account at PSU (Mail, Contacts, Calendars) with your devices, or you can install the Gmail, Calendar, and Drive apps from the app store.
