UAFS uses the Portalguard password management system which allows students and employees to easily maintain and reset their campus passwords. Once a user is enrolled with Portalguard, they have the ability to securely change a forgotten or expired password from any computer or smart phone anywhere in the world, without having to contact the IT Service Desk.
If your password is not working and you have previously enrolled with Portalguard, simply go to the Portalguard website and use the self-service feature to reset your password.
If your password is not working and you have NOT previously enrolled with Portalguard, please call the IT Service Desk at 479-788-7460 between 7:00 am and 9:00 pm Monday thru Friday and the staff will be happy to assist you.
Enrolling with Portalguard
First time users should ensure that they enroll with the Portalguard system as soon as possible. Enrolling is easy, takes only a few minutes, and need only be completed one time. For a downloadable guide.
Accessing the Campus Wireless Network
UAFS operates two wireless networks on campus: “UAFS” and “UAFS-Guest”. Students, faculty and staff should always connect their devices to the UAFS network. The UAFS-Guest network is for temporary use only by authorized visitors to our campus (those without a campus network logon). Do not connect your devices to any other wireless network.
Guest using the UAFS-Guest network will be required to self-register. Registration requires a valid email address and mobile phone number that can receive text messages. Registrations are good for 24 hours.
IMPORTANT: All users of the UAFS campus networks (both wired and wireless) agree to abide by the UAFS Acceptable Use Policy. They also agree to keep their computers updated with the latest operating system and anti-virus updates.
