Affiliate Accounts

Students, staff and most faculty will automatically be given a WMuserid.  However, there are a few categories of people where a WMuserid must be requested.  An affiliate WMuserid account may be requested for:

  • Volunteers
  • Visiting professors who are not teaching
  • Affiliated individuals who are not students, not employees and not teaching
  • Contractors needing door access (contractor accounts don't have access to IT services)

Please use Request IT to request an affiliate account.   The request should be made by the department sponsoring the affiliate.  For assistance, please contact the Technology Support Center at 757-221-4357 (HELP) or
