Please contact the Help Desk if you experience any problems, no guarantee can be provided that you will be able to make a wireless connection.

How to Use:

UTA Web Login

  2. When asked for a password for the UTA Web Login network, enter “UTAsecret”.  You should only have to enter this password the first time you connect to Web Login.
  3. Open a web browser.  If the login screen for Web Login doesn’t come up at first, attempt to browse to another website and your browser should be redirected to it. If a security warning comes up in your browser, choose the option to continue anyway and the Web Login screen should come up.
  4. At the Web Login screen, enter your NetID and password.  If your username and password are accepted you’ll be redirected to the OIT Online Terms of Service page.  You may browse to any other website after being taken to this page.
