Utica College Account Activation and Password Reset Site

Every student, faculty and staff member has a username and password, which are used to access Utica College's online and electronic resources. This web site allows current students, faculty and staff to activate or reset their password for the following services:
  • On-campus desktops
  • Computer labs
  • Wireless networks
  • E-mail
  • Engage
  • Library databases
  • ILLiad
  • BannerWeb
  • Other web-based services

Acceptable password use and tips:

You are responsible for any action taken using your login. You should change your password often, at least once every 120 days, to help prevent unauthorized access to Utica College resources using your account. If you believe your password may have been compromised, it must be changed immediately.

Choosing a new, secure password.

New passwords must be at least eight characters in length and meet the following criteria:

  • Passwords must contain at least one number (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0)
  • Passwords must contain at least one lowercase letter (a, b, c, etc.)
  • Passwords must contain at least one uppercase letter (A, B, C, etc.)
  • Passwords must contain at least one of the following: ! @ # $ % & _ =
This is the Utica College standard for strong passwords. All new passwords for Utica College accounts must conform to this standard.

Why do I have to use a strong password?

Your computer, your files, your e-mail, and other electronic resources you use are all at risk if another person gains access to your account. With various systems on campus all sharing a single login, your password will have access to sensitive information, and you need a strong password to help keep this information safe.
