An IT Computing Account is a username and password which provides access to campus services such as an @ucalgary.ca email address, and public university computers. Not all users who have a UCID will be eligible for an IT computing account, but all users who have an IT computing account need to have a UCID first.
You are eligible for an IT Computing Account if your course or program of study requires that you have access to specific University of Calgary services. When required, your UCID is enabled to generate an IT Computing Account. You will be notified via an email containing instructions for creating your IT Computing Account.
Your IT Computing Account will be active for six months. If your account expires, it will be re-activated if you take additional courses which require you to have an IT Computing Account.
