Getting An Account

All UNO students, faculty, and staff have access to various multi-user computer systems on campus. Student accounts are automatically created or activated with registration. Similarly, accounts for faculty and staff are automatically created when UCC receives the appropriate information from Human Resources Management.



UNO Faculty and Staff receive the following default set of accounts:

  • E-Mail
  • Local Area Network (LAN)
  • Moodle
  • SharePoint
  • Webstar

Note: Individuals who are under contract to work with a specific department or unit and who are otherwise not affiliated with UNO are not automatically issued computer accounts because their employment information is not entered by Human Resource Management. All appropriate accounts must be explicitly requested by the supervisor.

PeopleSoft Security Request:

Employees requiring security to Webstar or the Financials system must have their supervisor contact the person responsible for granting security in the area in which access is needed and follow that department’s procedure for gaining access to its data. To request PeopleSoft security, contact the appropriate person from the following list:

How to obtain a generic account:
