Sponsored accounts are available to people who have a significant affiliation with the University and need access to the University’s computing services.
There are two classifications, Academic Visitors and Non-Academic Visitors.
This refers to users who will require access to library and computing resources, such as:
- Professionals supervising students in work placements.
- Visiting academics.
- Visiting students.
To sponsor an Academic Visitor, please see the FASR process for Nil-Salaried Academic Appointments.
