Desktop Services User Accounts

Your Desktop Services (DS) account gives you access to all DS services: DS-Filestore, the MCS service, DS-Print and DS-Web.

Getting a DS account

DS accounts are included with your UIS computing account. Most University members are given DS accounts automatically when they join the University. Your DS account works for the PCs (Windows and Linux) and the Macs, and for connecting remotely to your DS-Filestore and DS-Print service printers.
