UIT Resources Sponsorship Services

University Information Technology (UIT) provides non-UH persons, employees, departments and organizations access to UIT resources to support instructional, research and/or administrative activities.

ePerson of Interest Process

All non-UH persons who wish to use UIT resources, must go through ePerson of Interest (ePOI) process (see below for link to additional information).  Through this process, the individual will receive a personal CougarNet account automatically, once the process has been completed in our PeopleSoft system.  

As a non-UH person, you will need to apply for ePOI using the "ePOI Application form".  The non-UH person must fall into one of the ePOI Services (see below for link to additional information) which ultimately establishes your relationship with the University of Houston.  It is important to note that UIT is not responsible for processing the ePOI Application form.  Please read the instructions for the ePOI procedure carefully.  Not all resources are available for all ePOI Services.

Additional Access for Personal UIT Resources Sponsorship

Once you receive your CougarNet account, your sponsor may require you to have additional UIT resources.  If you have not received all your UIT resources through the ePOI process, you may work with your sponsor to complete the "Additional Personal UIT Resources Sponsorship form".  This form requires that your current sponsor identified in the ePOI process complete the sponsor information.

Department UIT Resources Sponsorship

A current employee of the university is eligible to obtain a Department UIT Resources for the purpose of representing their department as well as assisting with department operational activities.  To receive these resources, UH Faculty or Staff may fill out the "Department UIT Resources Sponsorship form".  For this resource, there must be an owner for the resource as well as a sponsor.  The sponsor will always be the employee’s manager.  Department UIT Resources consist of:

  • CougarNet account
  • Exchange account
  • Central Web Server account
  • UH Alias (@uh.edu)
  • UH Listserv (@listserv.uh.edu)
  • ECC Unix (Engineering College)

The UH alias is generally used to communicate to a hand full of e-mail addresses.   Alternative to a UH alias, you can also request a UH listserv which allows you to communicate with hundreds of e-mail account owners.   You can then publish the UH alias (@uh.edu) or the UH listserv to represent as your department's communication/collaboration e-mail address.

The owner for a Student Organization must be one of top 3 officers who can apply for UIT resources. All Student Organization requests must be approved by the office of Center for Student Involvement (CSI) and must be registered with the CSI office on an annual basis.  Student Organizations can request:

  • CougarNet account

  • Central Web Server account

Change of Sponsorship

We realize that from time to time individuals who own these resources in your department or organization may leave the University and someone else may need to attend to those resources.  "Change of Sponsorship form" needs to be completed when when the owner or sponsor information needs to be updated.
