What is a GT account? A GT account (sometimes called a prismID) is a UNIX account issued to you by OIT (Office of Information Technology) when you enroll in Georgia Tech. It is also your email username (or login). Once you receive your GT account, you will need to create a new password at https://passport.gatech.edu . This can be done at the OIT help desk in the Main Library or from any browser. Why do I need a GT account? This account provides access to the campus network and a username to log into Spectrum email, BuzzPort, Prism services, the wireless network, and many additional online resources and services. You will need your GT account to access these resources. In addition, your Georgia Tech email account is the primary method that the Institute uses for communicating with students. The Institute expects all students to check this email regularly or forward it to a preferred account. How to activate your GT account
