Where do I find my institution's URL to access Canvas?
You can access Canvas through an institution-specific Canvas URL, your school's website, or a Canvas Mobile app.
Find Your School's Canvas URL
You can use our Canvas URL search page to search for and find your institution or school's Canvas URL. To find your school's Canvas URL, be as specific as possible with the name of your school and try alternative names, such as the name of your school district, abbreviations, or longer institution names.
Canvas Web Access
You can access Canvas through an institution-specific Canvas URL. Canvas URLs use one of the following structures: [your institution's name].instructure.com or canvas.[your institution's name].edu.
Some institution's may also allow access to Canvas via an institution-specific authentication system which redirects to Canvas, such a school student portal or website.
Mobile App Access
Instructure products are optimized for desktop displays. However, if you are using a mobile device, you can access Instructure products using a mobile application (app) or mobile browser. For the best user experience, please download and use the product mobile app applicable to your user role: Canvas Teacher, Canvas Student, or Canvas Parent using an Android or iOS device.
Within a mobile app, you can search for your institution on the app login page or manually enter your school's Canvas URL.
