A contractor account provides an ID Card, most notably for door access. All contractor employees entering W&M buildings need a personal W&M ID card for door access. No generic company access cards will be issued. This will associate a specific person with building access, to ensure accurate tracking and building security.
No IT services are associated with Contractor account!
I am a contractor

- Request Access - Your sponsor will submit a request for a contractor account via Request IT using the affiliate/contractor account form. (See "I am hiring a contractor" for details)
- Get your ID Card - One full business day after the request is submitted, you can pick-up your ID card in the ID Office of the Campus Center*. You will have your picture taken and you must also bring in any cards you have used previously so they can be destroyed.
