Important Note: On May 24, 2021, links on the Organizational Report Index were updated to reflect the new locations of reports due to the relocation of the university divisional and department reports. If you use desktop shortcuts, browser favorites, network links or mapped drives, you may need to update these references using the updated Organizational Report Index.
If a user only logs into their local workstation or logs into a domain other than NIUNT, the user will be challenged with a login prompt when initially accessing a report directory.
All users have a Windows NIUNT managed by DoIT. If you are having access problems, contact the Service Desk.
DoIT provides a password checker function on the Password Self-Service.
It may be necessary for you to visit the DoIT Accounts page and change your password according to DoIT password specifications to force a password synchronization and to ensure that the password conforms to DoIT guidelines. Users may contact the help desk at 815-753-8100 for assistance regarding their NIU login ID and password.
