If you need help, please contact the IST helpdesk.

    Not-so-fun fact: If your Campus ID is 2023-06-0001, your email address will be 23060001 @! But you will get your complete login credentials from the IST. So, get in touch with them as soon as possible!  
  2. If you have registered for on-campus accommodations, please check with the Residence Office at about your check-in process.
