UNIVERSITY LOGIN PAGE GETS A REDESIGN
The way you log in to many University of Utah web-based services now looks a little different. University Information Technology is rolling out a redesigned, mobile-friendly login screen at go.utah.edu, the primary place many users enter their uNID and password to access university information and resources.
The initial launch was scheduled for February 18, but was postponed due to a technical issue. It went live on Tuesday, May 12.
The new screen updates the simple interface to look more like other official university websites and will display better on smaller screens. Students, faculty and staff will see the redesigned single sign-on Central Authentication Service page when logging into services such as CIS (Campus Information Services), Box.utah.edu, Canvas and more.
This change also sets the stage for some advanced security settings UIT plans to roll out to some users in the future, including multi-factor authentication.
If you have any questions about the updated page, please contact your respective help desk or the campus help desk at 801-581-4000.
WAIT! OUR TEXTBOOK FLOOR HAS CHANGED
Summer semester is here. Whether you are a student or a faculty member at the U, the last thing you want to be doing during the first week of a new semester is spending WAY TOO MUCH TIME looking for your course materials.
In an effort to make finding textbooks easier for everyone on campus, the University Campus Store has rearranged its textbook floor. You will now find all textbooks in alphabetical order (from A to Z) by the author’s last name. With the new layout you will find all the books by a certain author in the same place, no matter which class it is being used in. This way, the Campus Store will be more likely to get you the right book at the right time.
With the new layout, it is very important that students bring their book list with them to the store when they are ready to buy textbooks. You can find your book list by going to CIS, clicking on “View your Class Schedule,” and then clicking the banner at the bottom of the page or you can visit the Campus Store’s course materials page.
Have a great semester.
