First off, welcome to SENS and the UBiquity computing environment! We have a one-sheet handout that briefly introduces us and has instructions for new users on getting a SENS account, finding a computing lab on campus, and other useful information. It is available near our offices on the first floor of Bell Hall (Enter the CIT/SENS public computing lab and turn right), and we welcome you to stop by and get a copy if you are unfamiliar with our services. Here is a PDF copy for your convenience (you will need Adobe Reader or some other PDF viewing utility to read this document).
If you need assistance with anything covered on this page, or any other computer-related issues for that matter, please read our support and assistance page.
You are eligible for a SENS account if:
To request a SENS account, please fill out the form here. You will be notified by email when your account has been created. Your password will be the same as for your UBIT account.
All SENS account holders are expected to abide by the SENS Computing Policies and Practices.
Once you've established a connection, using one of the methods listed in Accessing the SENS Timeshares, you can log in. Your username is your UBITname, and your password is your UBIT password, the same as you use elsewhere.
To log in to a Unix (Sun, SGI, Hewlett Packard, or Linux) workstation in any UBiquity Unix laboratory, simply type in your username and your password. As with the SENS Timeshare systems, you use your UBIT login name and password.
For a complete list of UBiquity Unix labs, please refer to our facilities page.
If you've got a new computer, or one that is not currently on the network, you'll need to submit a request for an IP address. Fill out all areas of the IP Request Form and submit it. Your request will be handled by the end of the next business day.
