Accounts

In order to personalize go.uconn.edu, you must have a valid UConn NetID. NetIDs are issued to all students, faculty, and staff. If you don’t know your NetID or need to reset your password, please visit: http://netid.uconn.edu/

Security Timeout

In an effort to protect your privacy, the go.uconn.edu page will automatically timeout after 24 hours. After this timeout has occurred, you can continue to view your page. However, if the page is refreshed or you try to make a change to the page (i.e. modify a portlet or customize settings), you will be prompted to login again using your NetID and password. This functionality exists for many of the University accounts that use NetID for authentication. The automatic timeout is meant to protect your settings, privacy, and communications.

Your go.uconn.edu preferences are stored using your UConn NetID, so you can access them from any computer by signing in. Just visit http://go.uconn.edu and click Login (upper-left corner of the page beneath the University of Connecticut banner and links).

Note: If you share a computer or use a public computer and don't want others to see your go.uconn.edu page (which may link to your UConn accounts), be sure to log out of your page when you're done.
