Phishing Attempts

Every year, the ACMS Help Desk receives reports of phishing and spam attempts asking for personal information, including but not limited to:

  • Any UCSD username
  • Any UCSD password
  • Your Social Security Number
  • Your bank account or credit card number
  • Your date of birth
  • Do NOT, under any circumstances, share your personal information. UCSD will never ask you for your password directly via email, and in general, you should never send sensitive information in an email.

    If you have mistakenly responded to the email, please change your password immediately using the global password change tool:


    Having Intermittent Wireless Connectivity Problems?

    If you have been experiencing intermittent wireless connectivity problems in the common room area of your college, please make sure to update the wireless drivers for your computer.

    Please visit the support page of your computer model (HP, Sony, Dell, etc.) and download the latest wireless driver software. If you are using an Apple computer, use Software Update found under System Preferences.

    Also, keep in mind that wireless is for the common room area, and not designed to be functional in individual rooms. Your primary connection to the network is the Ethernet connection in your room. Ethernet cords can be purchased at the UCSD Bookstore.

    If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us by calling 858-534-2267 or emailing us at
