Golden Knights Plaza Tower 3 (T3) room 233 now use the UCF network ID (NID) for single sign-on authentication. This means that in order to use a computer in either lab, you must know your NID and NID password and use that information to log on. Your NID and NID password are also what you’ll use to authenticate to the secure UCF wireless services (UCF_WPA and UCF_WPA2) and to access some computer labs outside of The Burnett Honors College.

As a benefit of leveraging the UCF NID for logon, students are now able to store documents on a central server, accessible from all computers in The Burnett Honors College computer labs, as well as those computer labs on campus that are set up for NID authentication. That central location is the default save location for most applications and is also accessible via the T: drive in Windows.

 

Please take this time to reset your NID password if you have not already done so. Your NID password can be reset by going to the UCF NID Password Self Service page. If you do not know what your NID is, you can find it by going to the UCF NID Lookup page.
