The OIT Passport web server (Personal Account Self Service Portal) is where most users (those who have a current affiliation with Ga Tech) activate their GT account, create or change their password, set or change their Hints, add other data, such as their cell number or personal email address to their PassPort profile, and many other account management functions. To activate your GT Account, follow the steps below:
OIT is no longer funded to provide free access to HPC resources to campus. As an alternative we have initiated the PACE program, which operates a fee-based HPC support service and no-cost consultation and knowledge transfer.
We offer HPC cluster administration services for entire clusters as well as a Community Cluster that leverages the idle cycles of smaller individual contributions.
You must change your password in order to ensure the security of your computer account. If your password were not changed on a regular basis, your familiarity with your password would eventually lead to it's compromise.
To change your password, use PassPort, same as when you were here at Georgia Tech. Be sure that your security questions (or HINTS) have been set when you actually know your password. The answers to these questions can be used any time in the event that you forget your password. Remember they are your alternate way to login. They do NOT reset or give you your password, they are simply another way to login. If you have to use this method to login, then you can simply create a new password.
OIT requires that you change your password about 3 times per year (That's every 120 days). If you do not change your password when asked, it will expire and you will not be able to login to various services such as BuzzPort, MyGaTech email, & LAWN (GTwpa).
Our GT account resources are reserved for the needs of our current students, faculty, and staff.
Faculty and Staff accounts start to lose services as soon as they finish their time with Georgia Tech. All former employees will maintain access to Techworks up to 2 years after their termination date.
