Campus computing login access to be changed

The way faculty, staff and students login to various University of Iowa computing services may change over the next few months.

UI Information Technology Services (ITS) in partnership with other Campus IT Providers plans to reduce the number of different IDs and passwords users are required to use. It will also make it easier for campus computing providers to create new services that are secure and easy to use. The keys to these services are the Hawk ID and Hawk ID Password, which many people already use.

Services that will change in the next few months include the following:

  • Finance University Services (FUS) Application Portal (HR self-service and Workflow)
  • Instructional Technology Center (ITC) access
  • Dial-in remote access
  • ITS (Blue) E-mail service
  • WebCT
  • Iowa Student Information System (ISIS)
  • Wireless networking.

As each service prepares to change direct e-mails and other notices will be sent to users affected by the changes.
For information about the Hawk ID go to http://hawkid.uiowa.edu. Or contact the ITS Help Desk at 384-HELP (4357) or via e-mail at its-helpdesk@uiowa.edu. Users may also contact their collegiate or local IT support person.
