Connect-Direct Newsletter

search the site

did you know?

  • Connect-Direct is mailed to the entire NYU community at the beginning of each academic year. After that time, you may unsubscribe from the newsletter for the remainder of the year, if you wish.
  • NYU community members are welcome to submit news item proposals for Connect-Direct; see below for details.

Connect-Direct is a periodic electronic publication of NYU's Information Technology Services (ITS) offering computer-related news, security alerts, our schedule of free classes, and other information of interest to people who use IT at NYU. As a supplement to Connect: Information Technology at NYU, the ITS magazine, Connect-Direct is a great way to stay informed about current events and information.

Subscription Information

Because of the importance of the news provided by this online newsletter, Connect-Direct is mailed to the entire NYU community at the beginning of the semester; we hope you will find it useful and informative. By default, each community member is also subscribed to receive the additional monthly issues which are distributed during the remainder of each semester. If you would like to continue receiving Connect-Direct each month, you do not need to take any action. If you would prefer not to receive the regular-semester mailings, you may unsubscribe at any time by following the directions at the bottom of each issue, or via NYUHome:

  • Log into NYUHome.
  • Go to the Lists channel, which you will find under the Home tab.
  • Find and click on the connect-direct link. (If you don't see connect-direct listed, click on the Update Subscription List link to refresh the list.)
  • The list window will open. From the left-hand menu, choose the My Lists button. You'll be prompted to confirm that you wish to unsubscribe. If you're sure, click the Yes button.
  • To return to your NYUHome screen, click on the Home tab. Go to your Lists channel and click the Update Subscription List link. The list should no longer appear.

Please note that even if you choose to unsubscribe, you will still receive the one University-wide issue we distribute at the start of each semester. This does not mean that you will need to unsubscribe again.
