What is a CAMPUS account?
A CaTS CAMPUS account (an acronym for Computer Access Multipurpose User Sign-on) is issued to all university faculty, staff, and students. The CAMPUS accont provides an account name and password necessary to access the Internet, email, personal and class disk space on network servers, and other computing resources. Account owners are responsible for any improper or illegal activity that occurs on their account. These activities include, but are not limited to, harrassment of others through electronic communication and use of university resources for business purposes. Therefore, account owners should not share their password with anyone for any reason. Misuse of resources can result in the loss of account privileges and charges filed with the appropriate university offices. A printed copy of your CAMPUS account information can be obtained at the Help Desk in 025 Library Annex.
What is a University Identification Number (UID)?
