Account and Password Information
MyUTampa, powered by OKTA, is the tool used by UT to reduce the number of sign-ons for select applications. When students, faculty and staff log into MyUTampa, they can seamlessly access other applications without additional usernames and passwords. OKTA is a third-party enterprise-grade identity management service, built for the cloud but compatible with many on-premise applications.
Compatible with all browsers, visit (and bookmark!) MyUTampa to begin your reduced-login experience.
