To access many authenticated university services and create accounts, new students, faculty and staff must first activate their UIC NetID. The following information is required to complete the activation:

Connecting to our wireless network through Windows is easy with your UIC NetID and password. Windows 8 requires no external software, it's just a simple login. For Windows XP / Vista / 7, we have a UIC-WiFi Installer that can be downloaded and used to automatically configure your connection. We also have manual instructions at the bottom for people who would prefer to do that.

You can configure BitLocker Drive Encryption to back up recovery information for BitLocker-protected drives and the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) to Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS). Recovery information includes the recovery password for each BitLocker-protected drive, the TPM owner password, and the information required to identify which computers and drives the recovery information applies to.

UIC-WiFi uses WPA2 Enterprise security with 802.1x authentication, PEAP with MSCHAP v2.These instructions should help you to connect your Android (2.1 or higher) device to the campus wireless network. You need to be on campus to do this, near a UIC-WiFi access point. If you have trouble connecting to UIC-WiFi, please visit C-Stop.

The process of updating personal information in the UIC Directory, such as name, NetID, phone numbers or office location depends on affiliation with the University.

Students

Student information in the UIC Directory is managed by the Office of the Registrar. To update personal information, such as name or mailing address, students should access my.UIC.edu and via Student Self-Service update mailing addresses and preferred first name online. For updates to legal name, contact the Office of the Registrar.

Instructors will often want to print the entire content of a thread or series of threads for reading offline. If a user attempts to print from the main course site view of the Discussion Forum this will create problems, due to the Blackboard frames layout. To format the content of a discussion forum for printing follow these steps:

To connect to UIC Virtual Private Network (VPN) on a Windows computer, download and install Viscosity from the WebStore. Free of charge for UIC faculty, staff, students, and affiliates.

Do you have an "always on" Internet connection? It's easy to think that no one could possibly be interested in your personal computer, but that's simply not the case. Having a fast Internet connection that's "always on" when you want to surf the Web is great for you, but it's also great for hackers from around the world who sweep through thousands of random IP addresses looking for computers that they can exploit. And what they can do is really quite scary.

Your NetID and associated password are the only credentials needed to access most University and campus networking and computing services.  Services such as the my.UIC portal, Blackboard, email, campus computer labs, printers and more.

Passwords are managed centrally via the IAM Password Management service. 

To connect to UIC VPN on a macOS computer, download and install Viscosity. Viscosity is available in the WebStore, free of charge for UIC faculty, staff, students and affiliates.

Important note: iPod touch and iPad devices need an existing network connection to download and install the UIC-WiFi profile. You do not have to be connected to UIC-WiFi to download and install the profile, but you do have to be connected to the Internet. Please use another wireless connection (at home, coffee shop).

JOE is freeware. It is an ASCII text screen editor for UNIX and it makes full use of the power and versatility of UNIX. JOE has the feel of most IBM PC text editors: The key-sequences are reminiscent of WordStar and Turbo-C. JOE has all of the features a UNIX user should expect: full use of termcap/terminfo, excellent screen update optimizations, and all of the UNIX-integration features of VI.

Google Groups cannot have calendars of their own, but you can create a subcalendar in your GoogleApps@UIC account for the group and share that with your group:

Your UIC email address is in the form netid@uic.edu, where 'netid' is your UIC NetID. This is an email forwarding address, not an actual email account. In order to be used, netid@uic.edu must forward to an actual email account, which for most people will be a UIC email account managed by ACCC.

For students, faculty, and staff, your netid@uic.edu email must route to a UIC email account. The only exceptions to this policy apply to the following special cases:

Outlook has a spam filter which automatically sends spam emails to a junk folder. Sometimes Outlook can mark legitimate and valid emails as spam thus preventing them from reaching your email inbox. The issue is rather frequent despite the fact that Outlook spam filter is set to “low” by default. Solve this issue by turning off the Outlook spam filter.

Many instructors have found it useful to have software and data files installed on our network servers for their students to use. The Academic Computing and Communications Center will work with faculty and departments to make such arrangements.

For any software not listed as installed by default, you must submit the software installation request before the deadline and provide all the required information.

ACCC email addresses, accounts, and services are available to current UIC students, staff, and faculty.

Unfortunately, we cannot offer unlimited periods of account access or email forwarding.
