About IU Guest accounts
For those with no formal relationship with Indiana University, Guest accounts provide limited access to certain needed online applications and services, for a specific purpose. The amount of access is determined by the particular application. Guest accounts may be removed if the account has not been used in more than a year, or upon request.
This type of Guest account is entirely separate from any other type of IU account.
Note: Guest accounts will not allow authentication to ITHelpLive, but Guest account users may use all other support options described in How do I contact the Support Center at each IU campus for help?

- Go to the Account Management Service at: https://itaccounts.iu.edu/

Note: For all Guest accounts, the full email address provided (e.g.,
