MyUSF Portal Debuted Oct. 22

All USF System faculty, staff and students will use the new intranet to access email, calendars and many university business systems.

TAMPA, Fla. (Updated: Oct. 22, 2010) – This fall, Information Technology previewed a new single-sign-on, unified intranet that all USF faculty, staff and students will use to access email, calendars, business systems and other functions requiring login credentials.

The new MyUSF is now live. The existing faculty and staff portal – known as eUSF – has been shut down, and those accessing it will be automatically re-directed to MyUSF. (Please note that individual departmental sites hosted in eUSF will not be affected by this change.)

MyUSF features password-protected content specifically for USF System faculty, staff and students.

As such, MyUSF includes navigation menus featuring links to important university business systems, such as web email, GEMS, GEMS Self Service, Data Marts, FAST, FAIR and more, and additional applications will be added soon. Employees will be required to use their NetID and password to login to MyUSF. (For information regarding NetID, click here.)

In addition to business systems, MyUSF will include sections for emergency messaging and for news and announcements, which can be targeted to specific audiences. For example, a message could be sent to all faculty on a specific campus, or to all students on their “home” campus.

MyUSF contains personalized content relevant to only the viewer. For example, a student's site may display class schedule, calendar and meal plan status, while a staff member's site may display email and leave balances. There are multiple “apps” included for the initial launch, and new apps will be added continually.

The university community has the opportunity to suggest new apps, and Information Technology will coordinate training opportunities so departments who wish to develop their own apps for submission will be able to do so.
