Towson University Shibboleth Identity Provider

This service allows external service providers (e.g., those hosting a web application outside of the Towson University network) to rely on Towson University to authenticate faculty, staff, students and affiliates. Towson University NetID holders can use their university NetID and a familiar university login web page to access the external service. Towson relies on the "Shibboleth Identity Provider" software to provide this service.

If you have come to this page in order to log into a specific service, you should instead visit that service's web page to start the login process. If you are a vendor or Towson University department looking to configure university NetID authentication for an external service (using TU's Shibboleth Identity Provider), the documentation below provides instructions for both vendors and TU staff.
