Information for new account holders

Introduction and Changing Your Password

Your Department of Mathematics account allows you to access servers and websites within the department.

Upon receiving your new account, immediately change your password from the temporary password given to you. To do this you:

  1. log into MathNet with your username and temporary password
  2. select Password Change from the directory on the left hand side
  3. enter in a new password for your account that is both secure and memorable

If you need help selecting a secure password, ITaP's password guidelines website (intended for Purdue Career Accounts) has some information on how to create a secure, memorable password.

Along with your departmental account you also have a Purdue Career Account through ITaP.   This account allows you to access several university-wide systems including computers in ITaP labs, MyPurdue, and Purdue Libraries resources, to name a few. You may have already activated this account through ITaP Account Setup before reaching campus.   If you haven't yet activated this account you can do so through several methods which are detailed on ITAP's Purdue Career Account website.

Computer Labs and Departmental Printers

Computer labs are located in MATH 737 and MATH 635.

There is a printer, 3 Sunrays, a MAC and an IT@P Windows PC in each lab
