Information on user accounts

All students will be supplied with a permanent, general-purpose account for as long as they are enrolled at the Facultad de Informática. Use of this account, or any practical assignment accounts, implies that you have read and accepted the Computer Centre Use Policy and accept full responsibility for your acts.

These accounts will be renewed annually. Accounts that are not renewed will be cancelled, and all the information they contain will be deleted.

The account number will start with a letter followed by the respective enrolment number. This user ID will be unchanged for as long as students are enrolled at the Facultad de Informática.

Apart from the general-purpose account, there will be other special-purpose accounts for specific practical assignments that will be opened on the computer systems specified at the time. These accounts will be automatically opened according to the information on the subjects for which students have enrolled stated on their application form. The user code will be the same as for the permanent account. They will be open for the respective academic year and will be cancelled at the end of the September examination session. Upon cancellation, all the information they contain will be deleted.

The password specified on your account application will be used initially for all user accounts; this password should be known to the account holder only. For greater security, we recommend that you change your password regularly, as set out in the Computer Centre recommendations.
