VMware Software

VMware offers access to various virtualized technology programs—including vSphere, vCenter, and Fusion—to help you succeed in your School of Information Technology (SoIT) courses. To use VMware, you must be a currently enrolled student in an SoIT degree or certificate program. When you enroll in a SoIT course, your email address will be submitted to VMware to automatically create your account (no information other than your email is shared with VMware).

How Do I Log In?

  • Go to the VMware website.
  • Your VMware username will be your official UC address: username@ucmail.uc.edu (replace username with your UC username).
  • If this is the first time you’re using VMware, you’ll receive an email with instructions and a temporary password.
  • If you used a VMware account in a prior semester, you will NOT receive an email notification. Use your UC username and former password to log in. If you forgot your password, request a reset.

What if I Register Late?

If you register for class more than one week after classes begin, you can still request VMware access. Email the Office of Innovative Technology and Learning Design (OITLD) a copy of your current class schedule (be sure to send this from your official UC email account). 

If you have additional questions, contact OITLD.
