Students receive information on activating their accounts once enrollment is confirmed. If you did not receive this information, please contact Student Computing Services.



New Student Staff Accounts

A TU computing account entitles student employees to email, shared calendaring, cloud storage space, access to specific group Web tools, and access to a limited area of departmental shared file storage spaces. Student staff members may obtain an Exchange account as well, if necessary.

To obtain a new student staff computer account:

  1. The student staff member's supervisor should use TechHelp ( to request a student employee Exchange account, including the student's full name and NetID.
  2. When the account is ready, the information will be passed along to the supervisor.

If a student staff member is leaving:

The student's supervisor should use TechHelp ( to notify OTS that the student employee has left the department. The Faculty/Staff Help Center will then disable the student staff computer account.

If you have questions, please contact the Help Center at 410-704-5151 or
