This process is currently only for activating a Student University Computing Account

Welcome to the University of Pittsburgh! Let's take a few moments and activate your University Computing Account. The entire process should take you less than 10 minutes to complete.

  • The following information from the email that was initially sent to your personal email address:
    • Your University Computing Account Username
    • Your unique Activation Key
  • The following information from your initial University of Pittsburgh application:
    • Your name and address information
    • Your school, major, and career codes
    • Your phone number as you initially provided it on the application
