Technology Resources for Incoming Gators

Albert and Alberta Welcome You to UF

New Gators! Here are some IT-related resources to help you make a smooth transition to campus:

UF Tour App and Campus Map
You know where the Swamp is, but what about Pugh Hall? Download the FREE campus tour app or check out the UF map link and be prepared!

Laptop, Tablet, and Mobile Device Check
To access UF’s Wi-Fi, all Gators must first clear a virtual checkpoint, which ensures that up-to-date antivirus software is detected. Complete the online check before arriving so you don’t experience an interruption in email or any another virtual lifelines!
