On Tuesday, Aug. 1, an upgrade will be released to improve the Self-Service Account Activation process used by Pitt applicants, students, and employees for setting up their University Computing Account. A University Computing Account is the key to accessing technology resources at the University — including email, PittNet Wi-Fi and wired networks, computing labs, and Pitt Worx.
Starting on Aug. 1, account activation steps for Pitt applicants, students, and employees will be:
- A message that contains a link to begin the activation process will be sent to the email address used on the student’s or employee’s application.
- The link will instruct recipients to enter their first name, last name, and date of birth to initiate account activation.
- Once submitted, they will receive an email or text message with a confirmation code, then enter the code to complete their account activation process.
Information and instructions will also be available on the account activation page and Technology website.
