Request a UD Account

Who can use it?

Faculty, Staff

This form is used by UD staff to request an account for a department-sponsored affiliate. If you’re trying to get an account for an individual that does not fit into that group, please use the appropriate process:

  • Continuing education students: Please ask the new student to complete this form instead: If you have questions, please contact
  • Misc-wage, adjunct faculty, and other non-benefited workers: Please contact your department supervisor or HR Liaison.  If you have questions, please contact
  • Osher Lifelong Learning students: Instead of submitting this form, please email
  • Library patrons: Community members 18 years of age and older who are frequent visitors to the Library can register for a free Library ONEcard that provides building entry through the turnstiles. For more information, please contact the UD Library instead of submitting this form. 
  • Spouses: Spouses of University faculty and staff are also eligible for a UD ONEcard, provided the University-affiliated individual is eligible. For spouse UD Account requests, please have your University-affiliated individual complete the Request Spouse ID Card form.
  • Department ID Cards: Visiting scholars, temporary employees, special groups and other department associates may also be eligible for a “Department card” upon request by their unit. These “Department” cards may be requested by filling out the Department Card Request Form.
