Graduate students at UOIT are not required to participate in the Technology-Enriched Learning Program (laptop program). You can connect your personal laptop to the wireless network. Instructions on how to connect to the network are available from the IT Services website.
Every student at the university receives a UOITnet email address. UOITnet and MyCampus are your official and primary modes of communication, so please ensure you check both frequently. Teaching Assistants and Research Assistants will also receive an employee email account to be used for employment-related purposes only. Detailed access instructions are available in the Graduate Student Communications and Email Accounts document.
Please note: As long as you remain enrolled in your program, you will continue to have access to your UOITnet account. Once you graduate, you will also have access to this account as an alumni. The account for Teaching Assistants and Research Assistants will normally remain active for the standard length of your program plus one term.
