U-M departments can get uniqnames, MCommunity Directory profiles, and access to some computing services for people by sponsoring them. For details about sponsorship, see MCommunity Sponsor System Overview (R1458).
For faster sponsorship, your department can designate its own sponsorship administrators to use the MCommunity Sponsor System themselves to sponsor people for your department. (Your department will also need a sponsoring authority who can authorize sponsorship administors.) There's no need to submit a form and wait for ITS to process it. You can enter information directly into the Sponsor System and create sponsorships yourself.
For a description of sponsored people and how they get uniqnames, see Getting a Uniqname, Directory Profile, and Computing Services—Sponsored People.
MCommunity Individual Sponsorship Application
Departments can use this form to request a uniqname and ITS computing services for an individual—from an incoming faculty member to a temporary staff member to a guest wireless user. This form can be used for individuals being sponsored for any sponsorship business reason; it covers both regular and temporary uniqnames.
MCommunity Multiple Sponsorship Application
Please allow three business days for your request to be processed.
Departments can use this form to request multiple temporary uniqnames (and computing services) for groups of people. This form can only be used for groups of conference/program participants, wireless users, and other short-term guests. For all other sponsorship categories, use the Individual Application listed above.
The form collects sponsorship details and asks that you provide a list of the people you want to sponsor in an Excel spreadsheet. The form provides a way to attach the spreadsheet to your request.
All sponsored persons receive access to U-M Wireless and MGuest. You do not need to request these services.
All newly sponsored people on the Ann Arbor campus automatically receive a Google Apps UMICH account. This account provides access to Google Mail, Calendar, Docs, and more. (People sponsored by Health System and other departments that do not use Google Mail and Calendar will not receive these two apps.)
Computing Services for Sponsored Persons Request Form
Departments can use this form to request additional ITS computing services for sponsored individuals. This form is intended for use by departmental sponsorship administrators who have set up sponsorships using the Sponsor System and who now need to request services for those sponsored people. The sponsored people must already have uniqnames.
