An Access Account is a User ID and Password combo that enables its holder to use the public labs as well as the full range of network-based services on and off campus. Students typically retrieve their electronic Access Account prior to their arrival for freshman New Student Orientation.
Students obtain their ID and password by visiting a web site that’s emailed to them by the Identity Services Office at the University Park campus. A user’s password is created, and security questions are set during this process. Required yearly password changes are completed via the ITS Service Desk.
