Your Virginia Tech PID is a unique Personal IDentifier. With it and the associated password, you can access the online Virginia Tech services for which you may be eligible. Access to your PID will be terminated if you are no longer an employee, a retiree, or a sponsored person, and have not been a student.

My VT is a gateway or portal to Virginia Tech online services and information designed to be used by all Virginia Tech students, faculty, staff, and alumni. The automatic single sign-on capability My VT offers with several university services, such as Hokie SPA, and Departmental Software, uses Central Authentication Services (CAS). Single sign-on means that once you log on to My VT, you won't have to retype your PID and password to access those online services. Featured also in My VT are several information channels that focus on a particular topic. Currently there are over 30 different channels created by various university departments and some channels are from outside sources, like headline news.
Note: The appearance, color, name, and logo of the Pulse client software has changed, but the functionality remains the same.
Update: To access Virginia Tech online resources that are not on the Blacksburg campus such as resources located on the Northern Virginia campus, set Pulse Secure (Pulse) to send all traffic over the VPN by using option number two (2) - All Traffic over VPN.
The legacy Virginia Tech PPTP Virtual Private Network (VPN) service was decommissioned on August 12, 2014. You will no longer be able to connect to the PPTP VPN.
Your Hokies ID is a unique ID for current faculty and staff that resides on the central Virginia Tech Windows servers. Your assigned ID belongs to you and you only. This ID and password serve to grant you access to the primary systems: shared computer resources such as file and printer shares, your Exchange email account, and Office 365 services.
Your ID may also grant other local access, depending on systems implemented on your network. It is important to keep in mind that not all Windows systems are in the same trusted relationship tree as the primary servers, thus you may need localized department IDs for some logons across systems. If you are unsure about a system, contact the administrator in your department.
