Problems with Vault Online Career Library

We have received several reports of access problems with and missing emails from Vault Online Career Library.

If you have requested an account or a password reset using your umich.edu email address and have not received a confirmation email, it is possible that these messages have been caught by the University's spam filter. You should still be able to log in to Vault with your umich.edu email address; however if you are unable to do so, you can create another account using a different email address.

If you continue to have problems accessing Vault, please contact Nathan Rupp at nrupp@umich.edu.

Time to Create Your Active Directory Login

Having trouble logging into the computers or the wireless? Ross Computing Services changed some of the login parameters for the Wireless and logging into the computers at Kresge.

Students should now use their Active Directory password instead of their Kerberos password. This is the same password that is used for the new RossWirelessSecure network.

For more information about the accounts, visit the Accounts page on DiscoverIT.
