If you are an undergraduate student registered in an ECE course, we will automatically create an account for you. At the end of the first week of classes, your username and initial password will be sent to the e-mail address in UBC's records. If you do not receive this notification by the end of the first week of classes, please stop by the ECE IT Services Office in KAIS 3070.

You must change your password promptly and at least once every term to prevent it from being deactivated.

If you are also taking Computer Science courses, your username will be the same as the username in Computer Science. However, your ECE and CS accounts are distinct -- they have independent passwords and separate home directories.

All Others

All other accounts are created upon receipt of appropriately authorized application form.

  1. Print the account application form. Both you and your supervisor need to complete and sign it. For your convenience, you can fill in the PDF before printing.
  2. Bring the form to the ECE IT Services Office in KAIS 3070.
  3. When we create your account, you will be asked to choose a sufficiently complex password, and enter it on a keyboard.

The use of all department computing resources is subject to UBC's Acceptable Use Policies.
