Information and Services for Faculty and Staff

E-Mail

Enterprise e-mail is provided to all UT Arlington faculty and staff upon activation of their NetID.  The service is provided by the Microsoft Exchange E-mail server.  The officially supported means to access UT ARLINGTON  e-mail is with either the Microsoft Outlook e-mail client on the Windows platform, Microsoft Entourage on the MacOS platform, or via the Microsoft Exchange Web interface with a compliant Web browser.

Full Disk Encryption

Full Disk Encryption (FDE) provides protection for computers and laptops by encrypting the hard drive and requiring a password at boot up to access the system. Should the computer or laptop ever be stolen then any data stored on the hard drive will not be accessible to those who do not have the password. FDE is available to all UTA Assets. The full disk encryption software ensures our compliance with UT System Security Practice Bulletin #1.

HPC

High Performance Computing is intended for use by UTA faculty, along with their staff and students, pursuing serious programs of research and specialized teaching.

J:Drive

Every faculty/staff member is allocated 10 GB of network storage space, commonly referred to as J: drive. The files in this storage space are backed up on a nightly basis. J: drive is mapped to the user account automatically and shows up under My Computer when logging on the computers on the UTA domain.

 

Mav Space

MavSpace is a web based storage space for students, faculty, and staff.  You can access files saved on MavSpace from any location as long as you have an Internet connection and a web browser.

NetID

UT Arlington provides a computer account referred to as a "NetID." The NetID gives you access to UT Arlington computing resources. Faculty & Staff with current appointments must have someone from the employing department submit the NetID account request form on-line at http://www.uta.edu/netidrequest/.
