UTLogin is a new centralized authentication service which supports web-based and stand-alone applications through standard authentication protocols. It will replace the Central Web Authentication and Fat Cookie system currently in use by many university web applications. The creation of this new system and the schedule for transition to it have been endorsed by the IT Architecture and Infrastructure Committee governance committee.

The UTLogin service will be available at no cost to UT EID holders.
