IT Access - List of Systems

Access to Campus IT Systems

Compiled by an Administrative Process Redesign (APR) Team:

Many UW-Madison academic departments and business units rely on access to a variety of IT systems to support their daily work. These systems are hosted and maintained by multiple providers across campus, and each system has its own unique process for requesting and obtaining access.

This page is hosted by the CIO as a resource for those who may get involved in securing access to campus IT systems for themselves or others. It consolidates information about the systems most frequently used to perform administrative duties and provides links to the appropriate access request forms.
