Computer Accounts

Course accounts will be on the OIT (Office of Information Technology) Unix cluster. These accounts will exist only through the end of the semester and then will be deleted. You must also get a WAM (Workstations At Maryland) account and a GLUE account during the first week of classes. These will provide a permanent computer account and will allow you to work from campus labs and by telephone/modem connections.

Computer accounts will be distributed the first day of class: you will get a login name, a password (which you should change as soon as possible!), and some basic information.

First things to do, even before getting your computer account include the following (see the Student Computing Resources page for this info and more.)

The next thing you should do is read the course page on Unix Info and Resources.
