Sponsored Duck ID Account Request

Service Description

Departments sometimes have a need to provide computing services to individuals who are not formally affiliated with the University but are involved in university related activities. Examples include practicum supervisors, guest lecturers, consultants, contractors, visiting scholars, and vendors. Sponsored accounts can be obtained in these cases to provide access to computing resources. Accounts are limited to 75 days, renewable access.

If only campus wireless access is needed, the UO Guest wireless system should be considered instead.
