The University currently provides multiple e-mail and calendaring solutions to its students, faculty, staff, and affiliates. The two centrally managed systems are:
Since October 2003, University Information Technology Services (UITS) has been providing one common tool (MS Exchange) to employees and affiliates of UConn. To learn more about this e-mail and calendaring service, visit web page http://exchange.uconn.edu.
Since 2011 Google Apps has been the student email system at the University of Connecticut.
New incoming students have a Google Apps account created for them. To access the account they will need to create a password by going to http://password.google.uconn.edu. Their NetID and password needs to be set first as this will be needed to set the new Google Apps password.
For more information go to the following link http://google.uconn.edu/. Your email ID and password will be different than the NetID.
EXCERPT FROM “ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATION POLICY”:
Any student, faculty or staff member who has been provided a University of Connecticut email account will also be issued a Personal Name alias. This will be the official address to which the University will send email communications, and the address that will be listed in the UConn Phone Book (http://phonebook.uconn.edu) and other University publications.
While the easiest way to receive electronic University communication is by using the University’s email service directly, an individual may choose to have their University email redirected to another email address at his or her own risk. The University will not be responsible for the handling of email by outside vendors or by departmental servers. Having email redirected does not absolve a community member from the responsibilities associated with official communications sent to his or her University email address.
All faculty, staff and students are expected to check their University email on a frequent and consistent basis in order to ensure that they are staying current with all official communications.
Husky Course Tools
HuskyCT is the name of the online course management system used at UConn. HuskyCT can be used for a fully on-line course, but most instructors use it to augment their face-to-face course taught on campus. Instructors customize HuskyCT sites by posting class materials and choosing which of the many Course Tools to use.
Once you begin the semester, your instructor will let you know if this tool will be used in the course.
UConn will use this ID to identify you for obtaining access for certain computing services such as: Student Administration, HuskyCT, Active Directory (AD), Exchange, and VPN (to name a few).
Student Administration System
UConn’s online registration system. In addition to enrolling in classes, you can access your registration appointment time, view the course catalog, search for classes, view your class schedule, advisor information, grades, unofficial transcript, charges and payments, financial aid information, and change your personal information.
Access http://www.studentadmin.uconn.edu to log in to the Student Administration System.
Use your NETID to access University restricted sites from off campus.
