Why can’t I find the service I’m looking for in the new myPitt?

A service's absence may be due to its not having been added to the new myPitt yet. Every effort was made to port the old myPitt portal content into the new myPitt environment. If you can’t find the service you are looking for try searching on alternate terms in the search bar. We also encourage you to click the Send Feedback link and submit that service you would like to see added.

Why am I prompted to log in to some services in the new myPitt but not others?

The service displays public services that anyone can view, as well as authenticated services that require you to provide your University Computing Account username and password. Once you authenticate to one service in the new myPitt, Pitt Passport allows you to access other services without logging in again for up to four hours. If you close your browser session, you will need to provide your username and password again when accessing an authenticated service.   

Why can’t I access some of the services I see in the new myPitt?

myPitt displays all University services, even those you might not have permission to access. A notification message will display if you try to log in to a service that you do not have permission to access.

How can I have my department’s website or service added to myPitt?
