The most common email account assiged to new students is the UC link email accounts. Your uclink account login can be used to download useful software like Exceed or antivirus programs at software.berkeley.edu. Open Computing Facility (OCF) gives out free unix accounts to students. I owe them their server space to host my web page. Long live OCF!
Socrates unix accounts are available for graduate students and faculty members. There are several useful mathematical and statistics programs available on socrates.
There are several places where you get internet access on campus for free. For instance Doe library, Life science library have computers with internet and you don’t need a student ID to use them. Remember these computers are intended for library research. More info. Several other labs are free but require a student ID card. Emailing is OK in these labs. Copy centers around northside, westside and southside of campus are also a source of internet access, but you need to pay several dollars per hour.
