Introducing self-service print release!

NKU now offers convenient, web-based, self-service printing.  Using your NKU student account, you can log in to release print jobs to any on-campus Pharos printer, view Pharos account balances, and more!  Try it out now at https://payforprint.nku.edu.


Spam and Phishing Emails

NKU receives a large amount of spam and phishing emails.  We modify our filters accordingly, but it is impossible to block them all.  NKU will never ask you to provide your password or personal information.  Any request of you to do so should be considered fraudulent.  Many of these emails link to websites that have been created specifically to mimic our branding and trick recipients.  Therefore, it is crucial that users do not click on any link in suspicious emails.  Please send suspicious emails to abuse@nku.edu and they will be investigated.


Reset your forgotten NKU password via text or email

Now you can add your mobile phone number or non-NKU email address to the password change page! If you forget/expire your password in the future, you will request a validation code be sent as text or email that will allow you to reset your password online quickly. Set up your account now by going to the password change page https://password.nku.edu/ and select “edit password recovery info.” This is a new service. If you encounter any issues, please contact the IT Help Desk or visit Norse Tech Bar in UC.
