Access Accounts

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.
