If you are new to the IUPUI campus, there are many resources to help you. The information below is a quick way to get started transitioning to our campus. You can also contact your gateway coordinator or our office for more help. Don't forget to look at the Policies and Procedures page.
Getting Starting at IUPUI
At Indiana University, Central Authentication Service (CAS) is a log-in service that allows you to access multiple password-protected online systems after logging in just once. CAS currently supports several IU web applications, including Canvas, One.IU, Box, OTP authentication, PeopleSoft, and the employee timekeeping and paid time off systems. You will be automatically redirected to the CAS log-in screen when you access one of the supported systems, unless you have already authenticated to CAS during your session. You can also reach the CAS log-in screen directly (https://cas.iu.edu/cas/login).
IU Secure is the wireless network for students, faculty, and staff to access on all campuses. IU Secure uses WPA2 Enterprise (Wi-Fi Protected Access) for authentication and encryption. When you try to connect to IU Secure for the first time, you may be prompted to accept a new security certificate. Verify that the certificate is signed by "Thawte Primary Root CA", and click OK or Connect.
If you experience problems connecting to IU Secure, try logging in again with your IUPUI username and password. If that fails, your best bet is to download and install the IU Secure setup wizard, available from IUware for Windows or Mac OS X or iOS. If you are on campus, you can connect to the free wireless network for visitors, but you may need to go to a public area of a building to find that network.
Once you have your hire paperwork completed, you'll want to get a CrimsonCard, which is the university ID card. You can put money on your card and use it at the Campus Center or at certain off-campus restaurants, sometimes with a discount. If that doesn't interest you, you will need to have one for most printing needs and for secure entry into some campus buildings.
Parking can sometimes be tricky. You will need to get the lowdown from your department before you show up. Some departments pay for parking for their associate faculty, and some do not. If you are full-time faculty, you can count on paying. Enrollments run from July 1 to June 30 annually, but you can obtain a parking permit at any time.
You have many options for parking, so be sure to learn about all of your choices before committing. Ask other faculty in your department about their preferences because they may be able to help you find an area convenient to your classrooms. More information about parking is available from Parking and Transportation Services.
You will look to this office for guidance on information security and policy, enterprise risk, travel safety, and facilities, as well as public safety and the campus police. One of the services you will most definitely want to sign up for is IU Notify, which allows you to be notified of any emergencies on campus. You can also choose how you receive notifications—your office, home, or mobile phones.
You can request an IUPUI police officer to escort you anywhere on campus if you're staying late or feel unsafe. Call the campus safety escort at 317-274-7233 (SAFE). This service is available 24/7.
