Connect IT accounts


All UCD staff and students need a username and password to use services on the UCD network. This is known as your Connect username and password. This gives you access to:  

  • A UCD computer account   
  • A UCD email account 
  • Many applications on the network

Access to systems depends on your role in the University. Please check the list if (opens in a new window)IT Service entitlements here to see what services you are able to access.

All users of the UCD network must adhere to the Acceptable Use Policy for UCD Computer & Network Systems. 

All new non-student accounts are protected by Multi Factor Authentication (MFA) as standard. It is a mandatory requirement for all new non-student users to enroll in MFA at the time of account set up. 

Full details on all IT account access is available on the IT Account and Service Access Procedures document.
