Windows Accounts

Academic Windows

Academic Windows is the primary Microsoft Windows environment for students. An Academic Windows account is automatically created for students during the UCID claim process. If you use a Windows computer in any of the public computing sites, you want to log into the Academic domain using your UCID login and password.

The Academic Windows environment provides access to a large library of Windows-based software in public computing sites. Windows PCs in most of the public computing sites are also AFS clients. You may have direct access to your Highlander AFS files when using the AFS client. Click here for more info.

NJITDM

NJITDM is the primary Microsoft Windows domain for faculty and staff. An NJITDM account is automatically created for faculty and staff during the UCID claim process. If you are going to use a Windows computer on campus, you will log into the NJITDM domain using your UCID login and password.

All NJIT-owned Windows computers must be in a Microsoft Windows Domain to help promote a safe and secure computing environment. If you need help adding a computer to the NJITDM domain, please contact the IST Service Desk.
