Faculty and staff may request an Administrative UBITName to use
for conducting university business, such as sending email from a
service-named account, logging in to resources or editing Wings
Each Administrative UBITName must be assigned to one sponsor,
but more than one person can use it.
Administrative UBITNames may not:
- Exceed 8 characters in length
- Be the same as any current or former UBITName or Unix
- Contain special characters such as $, # and *
Administrative UBITNames are created with 2, 6 or 12 month
expiration dates and can be renewed annually. As the expiration
date for your Administrative UBITName approaches, a reminder email
will be sent to the Administrative UBITName's mailbox.
Like standard UBITNames, Administrative UBITNames are activated
by the sponsor using the "UBITName Manager," a self-service Web
page. The only difference is that the following information will be
that of the Administrative UBITName's sponsor:
- Last four of Person Number
- Birth month (MM)
If you forgot the Administrative UBITName password, have the
sponsor contact the CIT Help
Desk and request it be reset.
Note: Password resets for Administrative UBITNames do not
follow the same process as UBITNames, they do not require an
identity assurance but the sponsor must make the request.
