UO Blogs

  • Access to UO Blogs by a guest must be requested by a sponsor.  Instructions for requesting a guest login can be found at UO Blogs: Guest Policy.

Zoom

  • By default, participants don't have to be logged in to Zoom to join an existing meeting. All they need is the link or meeting ID (and passcode, if you've set one).
  • If you plan to invite guests to Zoom, please review best practices for Preventing Zoombombing.
  • Individuals expected to create new Zoom meetings in the UO's zoom tenant will need an unpaid appointment (see below).

Unpaid Appointments

For guests that need a DuckID login, email, server access, fully-licensed versions of software, or access to student or financial data, an unpaid appointment will likely be required. Unpaid appointment holders are issued a UO ID number (95#) and claim a Duck ID account similar to paid employees, though the access available to their Duck ID accounts may vary as described below.

Associate Appointment

Associates are a type of unpaid appointment. These are generally people doing administrative work with the UO, but who are not paid employees.  Please see more information about what an Associate is using the Courtesy, Campus Associate, and other Unpaid Appointments article from UO Human Resources.   If you have questions about the Associate appointment, you can contact  Human Resources Operations with specific questions.

  3. If additional access is needed (email, network, Office 365, etc), the department can request it using the Campus Access & Support Request.

Courtesy Appointment

Courtesy appointments are also a type of unpaid appointment. These are academic in nature, provide additional access, and require additional approvals.  Please see more information about what a Courtesy is using the Courtesy, Campus Associate, and other Unpaid Appointments article from UO Human Resources.   If you have questions about the Courtesy appointment, you can contact  Human Resources Operations with specific questions.
