Student IT Account

A personalised UCC Student IT Account is available to all students.  

New Students

If you are new to UCC, your initial Student IT password will have been emailed to you as part of your registration information from the relevant office. You should change this as soon as possible. 

Returning Students - Important Change

You should now use your Student IT password for all services.  This is the account you used for Eduroam Wifi, Office 365, and logging onto computers in the Library and Student IT Centres in previous years.  The Student IT account now works for all services including MyStudentAdmin, Edugate, Blackboard, Umail, Smartcard etc.  If you don't know your Student IT account password, you can generate a new password

The portal@UCC account which was used for some services (Umail, Blackboard, etc) will be withdrawn during the academic year.  These credentials will continue to work as before, but but the Student IT account is replacing the Portal@UCC account for all services, and must be used in Semester 2.   Updates will be posted to the Student IT website, and we will have several communications about this during the year.
