In order to obtain access to University computing facilities (e.g. email & calendaring, filespace, network printing, etc.), staff and students register for an IT account.
New members of staff are invited to register online at the start of employment with the University.
On registration, you are allocated with a computer username (user ID) and are asked to create a password. You use these to login to University of Aberdeen IT systems. You will retain the same username throughout your period of employment with the University.
If you require an additional IT account (e.g. for a project or conference) you can download the appropriate form from the IT Services website.
Registration and Authorisation forms for other University Management systems can be downloaded from www.abdn.ac.uk/dit/staff/docu/forms.
Students will retain the same username throughout their course of study at the University, but will have to re-register and change their password at the start of each academic year. Once you have your student ID number you can register in any PC classroom.
For guidelines on how to register, see User Registration > Students.
