For users outside of the University of Florida, UF Research Computing has established federated authentication so that users can access HiPerGator using their institutional credentials. Federated login is available for most InCommon member institutions. You can verify that your institution provides federated authentication using the InCommon Community Organizations page and looking for the "Federation" tag. You can also look up contacts for your institution on the list of External University Contacts.
For your request to be approved, it must indicate a faculty sponsor with a Research Computing investment. If your faculty sponsor does not have an investment, they can obtain one by using our price sheets to decide what resources to invest in, then submitting a purchase request.
When an account request is received, Research Computing staff will contact your sponsor to approve your access to the sponsor’s investment; the account will not be created until verification is received. Upon sponsor verification, your account will be created and you will receive an email with the information you need to access Research Computing facilities. The process generally takes 2-3 business days, but cannot start until confirmation from your sponsor is received.
New sponsors from eligible institutions should list their institutional contact as their sponsor when creating their account request.
