CalNet Guest Accounts

What is a CalNet Guest account?

CalNet Guest accounts give limited access to campus services, such as CalShare or bCourses, for up to one year. Only active faculty and staff with an employee role may sponsor a Guest account.

Once a guest account expires, it cannot be reactivated. Expired guest accounts must be deleted by the CalNet team before you can invite them to a new Guest account.

CalNet Guest accounts are not for enrolled Students, Employees or CalNet Affiliates. See CalNet Guest Account Eligibility and Guest and Affiliate Accounts if you need help determining whether you need to create a CalNet Guest account or CalNet Affiliate. Guests are not eligible for bMail accounts and do not appear in the campus directory.

For technical details on Guest Accounts, see Guests OU.
