IT Account Information


Student and Employee Accounts

Create Your Account 

This process starts with the Registrar for students and Human Resources for employees. Until those offices enter your personal information, you cannot create your new account.

You will need your Skidmore ID number to create your account. Students: Your Skidmore ID number was provided within your admissions acceptance letter. Faculty/staff: You will need to contact Human Resources to obtain your Skidmore ID number.    

Create an account

Note: Account creation involves several components that take up to two hours to be completed. For incoming students these primarily affect the Academic Interests and Scribner Selection applications; for faculty, the Student Records and Advising portal. After you have created your account, if you cannot access these applications, please try again after two hours before reaching out for help.

Guest Accounts and Guest WiFi

Guests Affiliated with the College

Guests who are affiliated with the college and have a need to log onto college-owned equipment may obtain a temporary username and password. The account may last from one day to two weeks. It allows logging onto computers or wireless. Such an account does not have network rights such as access to our servers; it essentially has only Internet access but it does allow network printing. Guests may stop at the Help Desk on the first floor of the library during our normal working hours and make the request in person.

Employees may request guest access in advance of a speaking engagement or conference for individual(s). The employee will need to stop at the Help Desk to begin the process. The employee will need to provide information such as visitor's name, the time period the guest access will be needed, etc.  

Guests without College Affiliation

Skidmore College has special Wi-Fi for those guests who are not logging onto college-owned computers. Please point your device to the Wi-Fi access point named Skidmore Guest. You need to accept the policy on appropriate use and you need to provide your email address.

This Wi-Fi is excellent for guests such as visiting family members, admissions tours, some guest artists, vendors and more.

Employees and students must not use Skidmore Guest. It does not provide access to college resources such as printing, Blackboard and student systems.
