Create Your Avatar

Your first step is to create an avatar on Second Life. You can try it alone by going to http://www.secondlife.com and click on JOIN NOW or you can watch the following video.


  • You will need to have been born before August 1, 1992 to get an avatar that can go to vUTB.

After you have created your avatar, you will need to download a viewer to your computer.

You also have the option of using a viewer on a computer at any of the Open Labs at UTB. The first Saturday afternoon of the month and Thrusday night labs are open specifically for virtual users. Your instructor will publish the times, dates, and labs.
