Accessing online resources
IT provides account services that allow UM faculty, staff and students to securely access web services, email, the UM domain and Banner.
Services and applications that use your NetID
Your NetID allows you to connect to many web-based services and applications with the same login and password. University services accessed via the NetID and password are offered to all current employees and also to students once they apply to UM.
Use your NetID to access:
- UMConnect student email
- Academic Planner
- Mansfield Library
- UMontana Mobile App
The University's official email service for faculty and staff operates on a Microsoft Exchange environment. The Exchange server allows employees to store email, use a calendaring system, schedule meetings, organize tasks, maintain contact details, and access shared resources. To establish an official email account, users must complete an Individual Computer Account Request Form.
Some departments use their own departmental platforms for email, so users should check with their departmental technical support staff to determine which email system best fits their needs.
UM domain accounts
Employees may need to establish UM domain accounts in order to access campus resources such as shared folders, network printer access, or access to particular software. To obtain a UM domain account users must complete an Individual Computer Account Request Form. This form is also available at IT Central in Social Science 120, 243-HELP (x4357).
Banner is the software used by UM to manage all University-related financial and student databases. To establish a Banner account, a user must first complete Banner Basics, a navigation class designed for all new Banner users. Account forms are distributed at the conclusion of the class.
To register for Banner Basics, other Banner Finance and Student classes, as well as to view additional on-line Banner resources, please visit the Banner support website. Users may also call the Banner Help Line at 243-BNNR (2667) for assistance.
