- You cannot use your home.utah.edu account for commercial purposes (like running a small e-business or consulting practice).
- You cannot use your account for illegal purposes (Ponzi scheme or investment scams).
- You need to use less than 20 Mb of disk space.
- The server home.utah.edu now requires a SFTP connection for any IP space.
What can you publish?
You can put your resume on-line, let your future employer know you're Internet savvy, publish pictures of your pets or your last vacation with the gang. Have fun with it and learn more about the Internet in the process.
One word of caution. Protect yourself by protecting your personal information. When you put your resume online, consider carefully whether or not to include phone number or address.

Network ID Format
To access your home.utah.edu file space, you need to use your originally assigned Network ID and its corresponding password.
Prior to May 2002, University of Utah students, staff and faculty received a Network ID, or NID, in this format: jpd5. Since May 2002, new students, staff and faculty received a NID in this format: u0012345. The numbers are your student or employee ID, where the first zero has been replaced with the letter ‘u’. This new format is known as a uNID. Everyone has a new “uNID”. If you became a University of Utah campus member after May 2002, you do not have a Network ID in the old format.
To determine if you should be using a Network ID, or a NID, contact the Campus Help Desk at 801-581-4000 Opt. 1
