Currently enrolled students at UTPB receive a computer account. This account is for the exclusive use of the student to whom the account is issued and provides access to a number of services. These services include access to the Blackboard Learning Management System,  access to the campus (non-ResNet) wireless network, remote library database access through the UTPB proxy server and access to various campus computing resources through the Active Directory domain. 

Important Information About E-Mail

One important item that we need for all students is a preferred e-mail address.  Be sure to provide the University with a current e-mail address and check your e-mail often for important information about your classes and your university.  THIS IS PARTICULARLY IMPORTANT FOR STUDENTS TAKING ON-LINE COURSES.

To check or change the e-mail address that the university has for you, log into Campus Connect, go to Demographic Data on the " Student Information" pull-down menu, and then click " Update Information".

Students who prefer to use an e-mail account provided by the University may utilize the WebMail system.  To initialize your WebMail account simply go to and log in using your UTPB computer account credentials. Be sure to list your preferred e-mail address in your CampusConnect demographic data even if you are using a UTPB e-mail address.
