Activating Your University Computing Account


The Self-Service Account Activation process is used by Pitt applicants, students, and employees for setting up their University Computing Account. A University Computing Account is the key to accessing technology resources at the University — including email, PittNet Wi-Fi and wired networks, computing labs, and Pitt Worx.



Account activation steps for Pitt applicants, students, and employees are:

  1. A message that contains a link to begin the activation process will be sent to the email address used on the student’s or employee’s application.
  2. The link will instruct recipients to enter their first name, last name, and date of birth to initiate account activation.
  3. Once submitted, they will receive an email or text message with a confirmation code, then enter the code to complete their account activation process.


Instructions are also available on the account activation page and Technology website.
