Do IT now
Don't wait for classes to start to take advantage of the many resources provided by Pitt Information Technology.
✔ Connect to PittNet Wi-Fi: The next time you're on campus, connect to WIRELESS-PITTNET, WIRELESS-PITTNET FAST, or the PittNet wired network with your Pitt credentials for fast and secure service.
✔ Make multifactor authentication even easier: Download the Duo Mobile app for your smartphone. Watch the video below, or follow our online instructions (under "Step 2: Register a Device").
✔ Manage classes from your smartphone: Download the Pitt PS Mobile app from your favorite app store to check your schedule, add or drop classes, and view your grades—right from your phone.
Do IT at home
Run through these steps when you get home.
✔ Get your game on: Have a gaming console or smart TV? Register it now for the PittNet Gaming Network—so you can connect as soon as you arrive.
✔ Protect your computer: Download Symantec Endpoint Protection and Malwarebytes free at software.pitt.edu.
✔ Be ready to print as soon as you arrive: Don't worry about buying or bringing a printer. Install the Pitt Print client on your laptop or PC and you'll be ready to print to any of the Pitt IT printers on campus.
