In order to use the public work stations, users need to log in using their university ID and password or a guest account number. The unified desktop allows users to access the internet and Library pages, along with all software available through the Division of Information Technology, such as MATLAB, minitab, etc. without needing to find a computer lab.
Guest accounts can be requested from the Circulation/Information desk by showing a photo ID. All guest accounts allow users access for 7 consecutive days, at which point a new guest account will need to be created. USMAI affiliates (UMUC, UMBC students, etc.) are eligible to use Eduroam Wireless. For more information, check Eduroam Wireless web site.
