Changing Your Username

Only account sponsors have the authority to request username changes. If you are an account sponsor and need to change the username of a UTS account, contact the ITS Help Desk.

When choosing a username, it must meet the following criteria:

  • It must be 3 to 8 characters long.

  • The first character must be a lowercase letter.

  • The username can only contain numerals and lowercase letters.

Note: The associated login name, e-mail address, and URL for the UTS account will change immediately to reflect the new username.
