Tux Account Information
All CCI Faculty and Staff, as well as all students enrolled in CCI classes, are eligible for a Tux account. Student accounts are typically available on the first day of the term in which they are enrolled for a course, and faculty and staff accounts are created shortly after new members' account information is provided to the CCI Tech Team.
To claim your account, visit https://support.cci.drexel.edu/act/tux/reset/. Log in with your DrexelConnect credentials, and you will be allowed to set a new password for your Tux account. This account is also used for Gitlab and other services provided at CCI.
Tux just hanging? Make sure you are NOT on the drexelguest network, and we recommend making sure you have internet (play a YouTube video, do not just look at your WiFi status icon), and get on Drexel's VPN [https://support.cci.drexel.edu/getting-connected/vpn/].
*Drexelguest will NOT work with Tux. Use dragonfly3 if on Drexel campus, or get on Drexel's VPN if you have issues.
