Intune Campus Security Initiative: What You Need to Know about Enrollment

The Office of Innovative Technologies is implementing Microsoft Intune to manage UT-owned and grant-funded devices and equipment. Intune will ensure that university data stays secure and follows policy guidelines on desktops, workstations, laptops, smartphones, and tablets. Intune provides a level of security regardless of the device locations and without requiring individual action.   

Currently, the primary goals for this initiative are to verify Microsoft Defender is turned on for all Windows computers, has the appropriate settings, and is reporting into the Defender for Endpoint console.  The Defender console tracks any suspicious activity or uninvited guest and alert us so we can take appropriate action.    

Please note that macOS, iPad OS, and Android devices are currently out of scope for Intune, and servers are not included as part of the Intune initiative. 

Intune Enrollment

The Intune enrollment process will occur automatically; however, you may receive a notification prompt indicating a “Work or school account problem.” To resolve the notification, please choose one of the following: 

  1. Click on the notification to enter your UT email address ( and NetID password. 
  2. Restart your computer.
