UMass ID Card, Systems Access and Payroll System
You may use a number of different software systems and/or databases when performing your job at UMass. The systems used differ based the job we perform. Some systems, however, apply to all employees:
UMass Amherst Information Technologies (IT) will generate a UMass e-mail address for you, which you will access using your UMass NetID. IT will notify you of your UMass e-mail address and NetID via e-mail using the e-mail address on record in your job application.
You will use your UMass NetID and password to access many systems on campus, not just your UMass e-mail. These include:
- SPIRE, the University's student and employee information system
- HR Direct, the University's payroll system
The University uses a two-step authentication process to ensure your accounts and personal information remain secure. Be certain to enroll in Two-Step Authentication to secure full access to your HR Direct payroll information.
