Sponsored Temporary Accounts provide access to electronic services for campus temporary hires (non-HR), contractors, vendors, guests, groups, etc.
University of Kansas departments and employees frequently host non-KU affiliated individuals and groups. Many of these circumstances create a need for a temporary online ID in order for the visitor to access campus services and computers. Examples of these circumstances include temporary workers, vendors, visiting scholar programs, summer workshops, community training programs, or various other types of sponsored events.
To accommodate these needs, KU IT has created Temporary Sponsored Accounts. KU IT requires the Sponsored Temporary Account to be tied to the individual user, and the user must be sponsored by a campus department. Sponsorship is required to ensure the temporary account user follows acceptable use guidelines, as stated in KU's Acceptable Use of Electronic Information Resources Policy.
