Getting Started: Using Computer Services at UIC

In order to use the computing services at UIC, new faculty should follow the three steps below:

Almost any unique netid is acceptable as long as it is not already in use. The netid must have a minimum of three and a maximum of eight characters. Letters and numbers are permitted, but other characters are not. For example, Ada Byron Lovelace might choose adabyron as her netid. Once chosen, a netid cannot be easily changed, so please choose it carefully. Remember that the netid is a public identifier, and will probably be put on your business card.  Netids are registered immediately, so you can proceed to select a password and open your account(s) after your netid is registered.
