Welcome to GSLIS!  We want to make the technology you use as simple and stable as possible so that you can focus on your studies. That being said, problems will occur and you may need support from time-to-time. We hope you will quickly discover that we are the friendliest support staff you have ever met, and that you can come to us with just about any question you can think to ask!

Checklist for getting started:

  1. Set passwords for your University of Illinois accounts. We know there are a lot, but you can use the same password for all these accounts.
