In order to access UTShare, all University of Texas at Arlington employees are required to enroll in NetIDplus. UTShare will continue to redirect users to the NetIDplus sign-in screen until they have activated a NetIDplus account. Your office phone number can be used for the initial NetIDplus setup if you are only accessing UT Share on campus. After the initial setup, NetIDplus will only be required for off-campus access to UT Share and VPN. The enrollment process requires the use of a computer and an authentication device, such as a cell phone, landline, or tablet.
For more information about NetIDplus, please visit the NetIDplus page.
If you have any additional questions, please contact Help Desk at 2-2208 or email@example.com.

The Office of Information Technology (OIT) is asking clients to avoid upgrading to Windows 10 until testing is complete and privacy concerns are evaluated by UT System.

OIT will notify customers when Windows 10 is available for installation on University owned devices. See the Windows 10 informational webpage for additional information and for instructions on how to disable settings that are causing privacy and security issues.
