These are the two types of accounts commonly used by faculty & staff at UC San Diego, Active Directory and Business Systems.

Active Directory

Active Directory (AD) is for access to email (including Gmail), the UCSD-PROTECTED wireless network, Virtual Private Network (VPN), computer labs, Canvas, OneDrive, Google Drive, and Microsoft Teams.

Business Systems

Business Systems (sometimes referred to as Single Sign-On) is for access to business tools such as the link family, MyServices, and other central applications.  Some business systems / tools require prior authorization or training to access.
