University of Pittsburgh updates access to campus services with Internet2 NET+ OneCampus platform.

Pitt-campusThe University of Pittsburgh has partnered with rSmart and Internet2 to provide students, faculty, and staff a more intuitive way to find and access campus services and information from any device.

As a major public research university with more than 32,000 students, the Pitt community will use the Internet2 NET+ OneCampus platform to quickly connect with hundreds of applications such as registration, grades, and email in an online marketplace format.

OneCampus takes a new approach to organizing web-based campus services with a Google-like search, ratings, and reviews to effectively identify what services are being used and satisfaction levels. In addition, Pitt’s integration of OneCampus with Internet2’s InCommon federated identity management system enables single sign-on authentication and one-click access to secure services.
