About 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 Campus support centers

To create a Guest account at Indiana University:

  1. Go to the Account Management Service at: https://itaccounts.iu.edu/
  2. Select IU Guest Accounts, and then click create IU Guest account.

  3. Enter your email address in the appropriate field.

    Note: For all Guest accounts, the full email address provided (e.g.,  foo@hotmail.com ) is the account's username. You must enter the full address when asked for a username to successfully authenticate to the online applications and services of the university.

  4. Enter your name in the appropriate fields; enter and verify your IU Guest account password. Click Create Account.
