Non-University staff and student username and password (external)

If you need to access University of Otago IT services, but are not a student or staff member, you can apply for an external University username and password. An external username and password will give you limited access to the University of Otago’s online resources.

Please log in to AskIT to apply if you also need access to Library E-resources. If you are not in the University payroll system and have a non-University staff external username, you are required to attach a signed and authorised agreement from their Head of Department, Dean or Pro-Vice-Chancellor that you are engaged to provide teaching, clinical supervision or research services to the University.
