CSL: Computer Accounts

This section describes the various types of computer accounts available within the CS department (and beyond), how to get them, and what the policies are.

Please note: The online account forms may be accessed from within the C.S. network; otherwise, access is restricted via NetID authentication.

  • About C.S. Computer Accounts
  • User Introduction (PDF) - Information for new users.
  • Closing Procedure - Information for graduating students and other department members who are leaving.
  • Academic Term Accounts - These are special, short-term accounts for UTA's, people taking a C.S. course, etc.; they are intended to correspond to an academic term or semester.
  • Computer Account Online Form - This is the form to use for ``regular'' computer accounts; ie, not term accounts (see above). A paper version is also available, and can be obtained from the C.S. Lab Staff.

  • Availability of Other C.S. Computer Accounts - Some computers in C.S. are owned and managed by individuals or research groups, and access to these machines are controlled by these individuals or groups; for access, please consult the appropriate principals.
  • OIT Computer Accounts: NetID - The Duke Office of Information Technology (OIT) manages campus-wide computer resources and services as well as various computer clusters around campus. (For historical reasons, these facilities are also referred to as ACPUB.) Students, faculty, and staff are all automatically provided access to these facilities via issuance of a NetID upon enrollment or employment. If for some reason you do not have a NetID, please see the OIT NetID Requests page.
