Spam Alert
Please be aware that spam e-mail may periodically end up in your mailbox. These types of messages may try to disguise themselves as authentic emails, by spoofing “From” addresses from people we know or known companies. They will ask you send them personal informational because something might be wrong with your account, such as exceeded storage or insufficient information. Some messages might also ask you to help various causes by donating money or sending banking information.

It is important that you DO NOT respond to the request in the e-mail as they are spam. In addition, for any suspicious e-mail messages, do not click on any of the links, attachments, or respond with any type of personal information.

To keep your information safe, never share your account information and/or passwords with anyone. ITS or Pace University will never ask for your personal information through e-mail nor will any other legitimate sources.

For more information click here or from the Account Services page, select Guest Accounts/Request an Account (standard guest accounts expire after 7 days).  Please note: Faculty and staff can also use the self-service system to create multiple/bulk guest accounts as well as obtain additional IT services (i.e. Blackboard, e-mail, Banner, etc.).  Also, for security purposes, users must close out of all open browsers to complete the sign out process.

Not sure who to call? Contact the Pace Information Center (PIC)
