Information Technology (IT) provides computing and network support
for faculty, staff and students at the University of Houston. Students
can get computer accounts that allow them access to electronic mail, application
software packages and the Internet. Depending on their needs, students
may obtain accounts on time-shared systems running UNIX or WindowsNT.
Students may also be issued accounts that allow them remote access to
the campus network. Information Technology provides the following accounts
to UH students:
General Student: This is an all-purpose account for electronic
mail, Internet access, Usenet News access and text processing.
NT server: This account provides authorization to gain access
and personal space on a WindowsNT server.

Proper identification and proof of enrollment must be presented before
an account can be issued. For help with any of these resources, IT computing
support includes free training courses, online documentation and a team
of consultants, accessible via electronic mail, the telephone or in person.
