SFU computing ID

The username that comes before "@sfu.ca" in your SFU email address is your Computing ID. Don't confuse your Computing ID with the 9-digit student/employee number on your SFU ID card; for instance, if your SFU email address is "kipling@sfu.ca," your Computing ID is "kipling."

Your Computing ID serves as your digital login for all of SFU's technology services, including Wi-fi, SFU Mail (email and calendaring), go SFU (course registration, tuition payment), SFU Canvas (lectures, assignments, etc.), computer labs, the online library service, and a number of other SFU technology services.

Most SFU online services, including SFU Mail and goSFU, will remain fully accessible to you throughout your first year after graduation (the last time you had registered for courses). This gives you plenty of time to download copies of the materials and configure email forwarding for your SFU Mail account.

One year after graduating from Simon Fraser University, IT Services will send you an email informing you that your account will be converted to an SFU Limited Access ID in 12 weeks.

Your Computing ID will only have limited access to SFU online systems after the 12-week conversion period.

  1.  Log in to go SFU, the student information system.
  2. Click on “Browse Catalog”.
  3. Select the term (Spring, Summer, Fall) you wish to view.
  4. Choose to view either “All Courses” or “Courses With Sections Offered.”
  5. You can use your browser’s search ability to look for something specific or use the alpha index (in green) to go to the department you’re most interested in.

How to search for class schedule and space availability

You should look at the course schedule and make a plan before you sign up for classes.
  • Click on Class Search / Browse Catalog from the left menu in go SFU, or click on the green “class search” box when you’re in the Student Center.

  • Click on either Search for Classes (the class schedule) or Browse the catalog (course descriptions).
  • Choose the department from the drop-down list and enter additional information to refine your search.
  • Note: In the Search for Classes, if you want to see classes with space available only, make sure to check the “Open classes only” option. Or, if you’re also going to see full classes, you need to uncheck the “Open Classes Only” option box.
  • Click on the green “Search” Button to view search results.
  • Note: If you see “Your search will return over 50 classes, would you like to continue? Yes/No,” you may want to narrow down your search.
  • You may add “Additional Search Criteria” to narrow your search. For example, you may search by:
  • Course ID
  • Class Number
  • Mode of Instruction (eg, Distance Ed)
  • Class Days
  • Start Time
  • End Time
