If a colleague, vendor, or other visitor requires access to use the University’s networked resources, they must be registered as an affiliate using the Account Sponsorship Application. For more information, including links to the application and instructions, review the knowledge base article: Sponsoring Accounts
The sponsorship must be completed by the department or school sponsor on behalf of the affiliate. Upon completion, the affiliate will be assigned a NetID that they can use the same way a full-time employee or student can. This NetID allows them to log in to many services such as UConn’s Single Sign-On, ITS Supported Workstations, UCONN-SECURE, etc.
- Affiliate accounts may be sponsored for up to 12 months from the date of request.
- Affiliate accounts do not receive an email inbox by default. To request an email inbox for the affiliate, please contact the Technology Support Center below.
