Account Information Sheet

Before your arrival, a Computing Account will be prepared for your use whilst here at the EUI.

An Account Information Sheet provided by the ICT Service will explain details concerning your account, login name (username) and password procedures. This will be given to you by the Welcome Unit, Academic Service or Unit of affiliation when you arrive at the Institute.

If you are here at the EUI for a period of less than one month (<4 weeks) your Unit of affiliation will issue you with a Guest Account.

Please refer to your Unit's coordinator for any further information.

 

The Account Information Sheet is part of the Welcome Information detailing an overview of IT facilities at the EUI.
