How do I log in to an institution's Canvas Studio site?

If you receive an email welcoming you to Canvas Studio, you need to verify your account by setting up a password. This password is used to access a specific Studio site separate from Canvas. When you accept the account invitation, the login page displays the URL you should use to manage and access Studio.

Most commonly, email invitations are only sent to users who are invited to Studio as admins. You can manage your Studio admin settings in Canvas.

The password you create for your Studio site currently does not sync with your Canvas login, so for best results, create the same password for Studio that you use for Canvas. If you choose a different password, you can reset your password in your Studio site at any time using the password reset link.

If your institution enables Canvas authentication, you can log into your Studio site using your Canvas credentials.

Except for the Studio site user menu, Studio sites display the same content as found in an Studio account.
