Request or Renew a Sponsored Guest Account


Sponsored guest accounts provide access to network resources, or application-level access for associates, consultants, contractors, or guests of Dominican University. Account or access requests require a University sponsor (head of business unit, department, faculty, administration, etc.) and granted for persons for official university business.

Sponsored guests receive the following:

  • A unique Dominican University Network Account
  • Access to MyAccount, self-service account management, in order to:
    • Activate their Dominican Network Account
    • Establish security challenge questions for forgotten password resets
    • Change a known password
  • Access to university systems requiring authentication, including DU Wireless and Canvas. 
    Separate manual enrollment as a student or instructor in specific Canvas course is required

The following are also available to Sponsored Guests but must be specifically requested through the appropriate processes as outlined in the request process:

  • Access to University e-mail and calendaring services via
  • Access to a Star Card
  • Access to a visitor parking permit

Once the request is submitted, please allow 5 to 10 business days for processing and verification. In some cases training may be required before access is granted. The following are key points to consider when making a sponsored guest request:

  • Access terminates after midnight on the end date specified in the service request.
  • The maximum length of time allowed for the account or access is 12 months.
  • The sponsor will receive a notification thirty (30) days prior to the expiration of access to renew the account. A new request must be approved prior to the end date to avoid disruption of service.
  • It is the responsibility of the sponsor to immediately submit a service request to terminate access if the account/access is no longer required prior to the specified end date.
