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.
