Information Technology Resources

Network Accounts comprised of a User ID, password and email address allow students to login to the following resources:
    If you have an entry in the UTHealth People Directory, then your Network Account is ready. Network Accounts are created after you have registered and paid all required tuition and fees ( Normally, a weekend must intervene between the student's registration/payment of fees and activation of his/her network account.)
    You can pick up your Network Account by bringing your Student ID Badge (and for students from other institutions, either a State Issued ID or Passport) to the GSBS IT Manager, Mitchell Bldg. (BSRB), room S3.8411.
    Change your password immediately by going to the UTHealth Netcenter Change/Reset Password Web Application:
    If your password does not work and you require a password reset, call the UTHealth Help Desk at (713) 486-4848.
