Accounts & Passwords

Overview   Accounts and Passwords

UITS accounts are issued to all university faculty, staff, and students. Individuals are provided with an account name and password necessary to access the Internet, email, personal and class disk space on network servers, and other computing resources.

Account owners are responsible for any improper or illegal activity that occurs on their account. These activities include, but are not limited to, harrassment of others through electronic communication and use of university resources for business purposes. Therefore, account owners should not share their password with anyone for any reason. Misuse of resources can result in the loss of account privileges and charges filed with the appropriate university offices.

For any account maintenance requests, questions, or concerns, phone (520) 626.TECH (8324) or login to UAssist to request support.
