June 7 Updates from UFIT: Password reset process is changing, P2P next week, UF has largest DAS in higher ed

Update Your Personal Info in myUFL

The GatorLink Account Management system will be upgraded in July.  To complete a self-service reset for a forgotten password after the upgrade, users will receive a verification code via text (SMS) or voice call, which is then entered on the appropriate screen.   >> Before the upgrade takes place, be sure to log in to myUFL and confirm that your current home phone number and/or your personal or work cellphone number is in your Directory Profile.  You won’t be able to use the self-service online password reset feature if this information isn’t in your Directory Profile.  (Instead, a visit to the UF Computing Help Desk will be required.)   Here’s the breadcrumb path to update your information:

The summer Peer2Peer is Friday, June 17, from 8:30am-12:30pm.  Summer “P2P” will be held at the Graham Area Office building in the Graham Gallery, 2nd floor.  The line-up (subject to change) includes presentations on PowerPoint and LTI plug-ins for Canvas, GitHub, and a successful “Day One” IT onboarding process used in Student Affairs. For any questions about P2P or to suggest topics for upcoming training and outreach events, please email the IT Training Committee.

UF’s Distributed Antenna System Largest in U.S. Higher Ed

UF now has the largest DAS in U.S. higher education.  Begun in 2012, the DAS project increases the call volume capacity, cell phone coverage, and wireless performance that tens of thousands of students, faculty, staff, and campus visitors rely on each day. The expansion also provides a major connectivity and performance boost for The Swamp, UF’s public safety needs, and for 11 buildings of UFHealth. To date, 1,427 antennas have been installed on the UFHealth campus, 312 antennas at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, and 33 wide-coverage outdoor antennas covering Main campus.  The next DAS project focuses on UF’s East Campus and the O’Connell Center.
