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.

Your team's librarian is listed as Member in the Site Info section of your CTools page. Send him/her a message to set up a meeting, to just say hello, or bring on the questions. We are here to help!
