Request an Extended Guest and Affiliate Access

! Questions regarding the process of becoming an affiliate should be directed to HR at 701.777.4226

An affiliate account may be needed if an individual is not part of the University but needs access to resources for an extended amount of time (over 7 days) or more than just network access is required.

Affiliate access gives more than just wireless access. It can also give access to an email account, Active Directory (AD) and more. AD access allows the user to log into campus computers and would also allow access to a shared network drive.

  • If you only need temporary network access, then please contact the department you are visiting or consulting with.

Affiliates @ UND Form Instructions

An affiliate of UND is an individual brought to the campus at the request of a UND sponsoring department. The sponsoring department is required to fill out the Affiliates @UND form and obtain the appropriate signatures to ensure the affiliate is able to access the proper services. If a U Card is needed by the affiliate, the individual is responsible for payment of the U Card fee at the time of issuance.

Please follow these line-by-line directions when filling out the form.

Affiliate Name and Date of Birth:

Be sure to verify the correct spelling of the affiliate’s last, first and middle names and attain an accurate date of birth. In addition, and when appropriate, be sure to identify any other names by which the affiliate may have been known.


The EMPLID # is the “key” to the affiliate being able to access services. This is always a 7 digit number that usually starts with a zero. If an affiliate has ever been employed by UND, another North Dakota University System institution, or state agency or has been a student at a North Dakota University System institution, they will already have an EMPLID #.

  • If any of the answers to the questions are yes, the same EMPLID # will be used during the time the person is affiliated with campus.
  • If the answer is no, a new EMPLID # will be assigned.

Home (Local/Permanent) Address:

This is the home (local/permanent) address of the affiliate. If the affiliate has a cell phone #, it would be used for notification in case of a campus emergency.
