7. How do I access my e-mail and other network services?

Usernames, ID’s and Passwords. You will not be able to access the internet or e-mail until ITS assigns you a Net ID. Your Technology Coordinator will help you procure one, and should be able to lead you through the initial steps of logging in and setting up a password. ITS has a page to explain the differences between the various passwords and ID numbers you will have. Once you have a Net ID, you will want to read about the MyUlbany portal.

Email and internet. When you log on to MyUAlbany for the first time it will ask you to create a complex password to access several functions. This password can be used to access different information systems (including e-mail, webmail, and Blackboard) by clicking the box next to each system for which you hope to use that password. Some students like the added security of having three separate passwords. UAlbany has multiple e-mail systems to provide you with the maximum flexibility. Read about these systems and how to set up each one on the e-mail webpage.

Wireless Campus. The public areas of UAlbany are wireless. With a laptop you will be able to access your e-mail while relaxing in the campus coffee shop.
