 +Computing services and resources ​are accessed via a CS Dept computing account. Faculty and graduate students have accounts created for them, undergraduates majoring in CS or taking CS courses can request a CS account.
  
 When you start at UVA, you get a userid (something like "//​abc1de//"​),​ which you use to access general UVA sites like Collab or Netbadge systems. When you get a CS Dept. account, you will have an identical userid ("//​abc1de//"​),​ //but a different password than the one you use for general UVA systems//. **When the CS account is created for you, you are sent an email with a temporary password that needs to be changed upon first login.** See //Account Information//​ below. When you start at UVA, you get a userid (something like "//​abc1de//"​),​ which you use to access general UVA sites like Collab or Netbadge systems.
