Welcome to the USF St. Petersburg!
Before you can begin using any USF St. Petersburg computers or university information systems, you must first complete payroll registration, GEMS registration, and receive your Employee ID (EMPLID) number from the Human Resources Department.
Accounts cannot be created until your official start date. After you receive your Employee ID, it may take up to 24 hours for your employment status to update in the various USF systems. Once the appropriate USF systems receive your Employee ID information, you will be able to purchase your USF St. Petersburg ID Card and activate your USF NetID.
IT is striving to make the technology platforms across all campuses integrated and seamless. This transition includes the move from a USF Gmail account (mail.usf.edu or usfsp.edu) to a USF Office 365 account (usf.edu). The email portion of consolidation for faculty and staff was completed during Spring 2020. Other services within G Suite such as Sites or Drive will be handled separately. Information around the changes and access to email are listed below.
What happens to my email?
During this transition, most of your mailbox contents will be migrated over to your new (or existing) Office 365 Email account automatically. Read the Project Overview for more details on what will be migrated for you.
How do I check my new email account?
You can access your Office 365 email account via the methods below. Log in with your email address (email@example.com) and NetID Password
- Online through Outlook Web Access (OWA)
- MyUSF – under the Email Menu, click Office 365
- Using the Outlook Desktop client (available for Mac and Windows)
- On your mobile device using the Outlook App (preferred) or your native web mail app (iOS and Android)
Important note for hiring and onboarding staff
As of February 24th, 2020, new employees were provisioned with accounts in Office 365 (@usf.edu) instead of Google Gmail (@mail.usf.edu).
Please visit USF OneAccount for more details.
Using your USF NetID, you will be able to log into university information services with a single username and password, such as, USF Email, MyUSF, and CANVAS; along with registering devices on the wireless networks.
BAYBORO ACCOUNTS (COMPUTER LOGIN)
A Bayboro Account is a domain user account that allows faculty and staff to access office computers, classroom computers, and shared drives. Your Bayboro username is matched so that it is the same as your USF NetID username. Your Bayboro Account is a separate account from your USF NetID account with access to separate resources.
The USF LISTSERV is industry standard list management software that allows you to maintain email lists used for your department, college, project, or any other activity requiring email communication. You can add and remove subscribers, and maintain the list and settings to best meet your needs. Please visit the Listserv website for more information:
PHONES AND VOICE MAIL
Every office, classroom, and lab on campus is required to have at least one Cisco IP phone connected and in working order. When you arrive to your office, most likely a phone will already be available for you. If not, you should contact your supervisor to have them order a Cisco IP phone. If a phone is already available to you, but is configured for someone else, you will need to complete and submit a Communication Services Request Form with your supervisor’s signature. ALL requests for phone related changes must be submitted with the Communication Services Request Form.
WIRELESS INTERNET (WIFI)
You will need to register your university or personal devices on the USF wireless networks before you can access the Internet. You have two wireless network to choose from, USF and USF Gold.
BUILDING AND ROOM ACCESS
Key Cards, also known as Proxy Cards, are used to access buildings and rooms on campus. You should check with your supervisor to determine if you will need a key card. Learn more about building and room key cards.
