Is It Necessary To Have A Gator Link Account At UF

Is it necessary to have a Gator Link account at UF?

All UF faculty, staff and students are required to have a Gator Link account. The goal is to consolidate, under one username and password, the many userids and passwords needed to reach different campus computing services.

Gator Link is used for wireless, walk-up and other network access and for authentication to the myUFL Portal as well as many other campus web services. Access to all services requires that the person also be authorized to use that particular service.

The UF Business email address is required to be the Gator Link email address for students, and students are not permitted to forward official email to non-UF email services. Faculty and staff may use a departmental email service as their UF Business address and may forward their Gator Link address to the Gator Link mailbox ot to the departmental email.
