Accessing Canvas within MyUSF

The University Web Portal, MyUSF, is the entryway to your courses on Canvas.

The MyUSF portal is a consolidation of online services to be provided via the web for USF faculty, staff and students. Some of these services include: Canvas, OASIS, USF communities and organizations online, access to email, libraries, Campus Bookstore, and many more student services and resources. To gain access to MyUSF portal, please follow the steps below:
