Accounts

In the University of Pennsylvania Stuart Weitzman School of Design, there are four main, completely separate accounts you will need to access resources and software on both our network and the University of Pennsylvania network. They include:

  • PennKey
  • Design computer / domain
  • PennO365
  • Adobe ID

See below for details and requirements for each account.

PennKey

Your PennKey is the primary account that you will use at Penn. A PennKey username and password are required to access many of the University‚Äôs online resources and services. Read more here.

Design Account

Your Design Account is the account used only for Weitzman School services and networks. Your username is the same as your PennKey, however you'll set a separate password. Read more here.

PennO365

Your PennO365 account is your University email account. All PennKey users are granted an O365 account. Read more here.

Adobe ID

Adobe products like Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere, and so on are not provided by the University of Pennsylvania. Discounted educational licenses are available over on their website. NOTE: Students need a free Adobe Account to use software like Photoshop, Acrobat Pro, etc. in the PC labs. Read more here.

Password Management

You have three separate accounts (as mentioned above) each with their own password. The University of Pennsylvania suggests the safest way to manage your passwords is via a password vault application, as opposed to sticky notes or saved in your web browser.
