Technology Service Center
We have trained technology support resources available 24/7 to answer your technology questions. If you need new software or need to report any technology-related issue, please contact us at 325-942-2911 ITsupport@angelo.edu.
Technology Access Account
Every employee is given a Technology Access Account which consists of a username (usually your first initial and last name, possibly followed by a number) and a password. Your account is used to log in to your office computer, connect to WiFi, access network drives, log into RamPort, email and more. To obtain your username, please call the Service Center. You will need to provide your campus ID number for verification purposes.
Your password expires and will need to be changed every 120 days. Use a strong password and do not use the same password as other accounts. You can change your password, when prompted to do so, on your computer, or by visiting mypassword.angelo.edu. While there, enroll in the MyPassword service to set your recovery options in case you ever forget your password and need to reset it.
RamPort is ASU’s student and employee web portal. Log in with your username and password at ramport.angelo.edu to access employee records, documents, services and more. While you are there, be sure to set up ASUAlert for emergency notifications on your devices. Learn more at angelo.edu/asualert.
