Account Activation : Introduction

Welcome to Activ8!

This web application is used to create a Prism Lab computer account, or to change the password on an existing account. The Prism Lab is located on the first floor of the Lassonde Building (LAS) at York University.

In order to use this web application to generate an account, you must meet the following criteria:

  • You must have a Passport York account.
  • You must be enrolled in a course (eg. EECSxxxx) that uses the Prism Lab.[*]

If you have any questions or problems with this web application, please email during business hours.
