Changing password through Identity Manager

This manual guides you in the steps to change your ICT account password. This is the password you use for all UT related ICT services like the UT Workstation, PC rooms, e-mail, Blackboard and Osiris.

If you no longer know your current password, you can go to the ICTS Service Desk in person to change this. You should take your college card with you as identification.
