Technology, Systems and Reporting



UST Username

As an employee of the university your username is your primary UST account.  Your username and password allow you to log on to UST domain computers, log into the email server, and access UST network resources from non-UST computers.  You are automatically assigned an account when you become part of the UST community.  Your UST account consists of a username and password.  More information about your UST username is available on the Information, Resources & Technologies webpage.

New Employee Account Set-up

UST accounts are created once your new hire paperwork is completed, or after the hiring manager completes and submits the Employee Action Form (EAF) to Human Resources.  The EAF informs Human Resources and IRT that your new employee account needs to be established.  Once your new hire paperwork is received in Human Resources, you will be setup in USTs Banner system (record of employment) as an employee.  After your record is established in Banner, you will be sent an email notification with instructions on how to activate your UST email account.

Affiliate Guest Accounts

IRT also offers non-employee, or affiliate guest accounts, for individuals who by the nature of their relationship to UST do not have HR paperwork to complete but require access to University resources.  The use of the Affiliate Guest accounts is primarily for a vendor or contractor of the University that will not be paid directly in the form of payroll.  More information about affiliate guest accounts is available on the IRT webpage.

Employee Data and Reporting 

The Human Resources HR-Systems group is responsible for providing reports and data files across UST to meet a variety of needs.  There are currently two methods available for obtaining employee and employee-related data from HR:  (1) the HR management report library, which is only available to members of the academic and administrative leadership group (i.e. EVP, AVP, VP, Dean) or their designee and requires initial set-up by HR-Systems to establish access, or (2) by requesting data from the HR-Systems group using the HR Report Request/Authorization form.  Requests received via this form also require the approval of the academic and administrative leader of the department/group associated with the requestor making the request.  Instructions for using the form are provided at the top of the form.
