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.
Sponsors requesting accounts will have their accounts created automatically once faculty membership is verified.
