Trusted Agent Services

The University divisions and some departments and groups on campus have designated Trusted Agents who are authorized to provide varying levels of account privileges, ranging from longer Guest Network (GuestNet) access to account services that are comparable to that of University faculty, students, and staff. Eligibility for Trusted Agent services generally requires a defined relationship with the division, department, or group, e.g., contractors or collaborators.
