Information Technology

We have a variety of technical resources available for students, faculty, and staff to gain online access and stay connected throughout the Grace campus. Listed on this page are all IT resources, including instructions on how to access them around campus.

Your Account (My Grace Login)

Every active student at Grace has an account that gives them access to all the IT resources available on campus. To log into your account you will need a username and password. Your username is the same as your e-mail address and will act as your personal identification for using the university’s technology services.

This account stays active while you are enrolled at Grace.  All accounts are created once you have registered for classes. Once your registration process is complete, you are notified of your account name and password during your initial orientation.

You can access all your student information and important university services by clicking on the My Grace Login tab on our website, or visit the direct link at my.graceu.edu.

Note the following parameters regarding your Student account:

  • Passwords are required to be changed every 150 days. Any time you want or need to change your password, go to https://webmail.graceu.edu/password and enter your username and password. Then enter a new password and confirm the new password. 
  • Passwords should be at least 7 characters in length.
  • Passwords are case sensitive.

Computers in Residence Halls

Each dorm room is equipped with one or more network connections (RJ-45). Each connection requires a standard Ethernet cable and 10/100BaseT Ethernet provided by the student. The only configuration necessary is that your network card be set to “Obtain an IP address automatically” and that your internet browser be set to “Automatically detect settings”.

If you need further information or assistance please see the PC Help. Grace University is responsible for the connection into the room; any problems with your personal computer are your personal responsibility. If you need advice or assistance the Computer Helpdesk can point you in the right direction and will assist when possible.

Note the following parameters regarding Residence Halls Computers:

  • Personal computer use in the dorms is governed by the “Acceptable Use Policy”*
  • There is an internet content filter that requires you to log on with your username and password before allowing you to view any web pages.
  • Personal wireless access points are not allowed. Please remember that the network connection in your room and internet service on campus is a shared resource. It is imperative that all users follow safe computing guidelines in order to maintain high speeds and stability.
