This lesson will show you how to log in to Canvas from an internet browser. If you are using Canvas with your student's institution, you will log in either from the institution's webpage or by using their direct Canvas URL. Canvas Network accounts also log in with a Canvas URL. You can also log in to Canvas on the Canvas Mobile apps.

If you are observing a student associated with an institution using Canvas and you do not know your username and password, please contact the institution's site administrator.
Some institutions host Canvas within their website. You may only need to sign into the internal system at your student's institution to access Canvas.
Access Canvas via Canvas URL
Some institutions have you log in to Canvas using the direct link to their Canvas URL. In a browser window, enter the institution's Canvas URL. The institution's Canvas login page will appear in the window.
