Request Account (HiPerGator)
GatorLink Account Required
An active GatorLink account is required to access any Research Computing related resource.
If you are a non-UF research collaborator and need a GatorLink account, submit a support request naming your UF faculty sponsor and research group. Research Computing staff will contact you and guide you through the process of obtaining an account.
You will be prompted to log into your GatorLink account to begin the account request. For your request to be approved, it must indicate a faculty sponsor with a Research Computing investment. If your faculty sponsor does not have an investment, they can obtain one by using our price sheets to decide what resources to invest in, then submitting a purchase request.
When an account request is received, Research Computing staff will contact your sponsor to approve your access to the sponsor’s investment; the account will not be created until verification is received. Upon sponsor verification, your account will be created and you will receive an email with the information you need to access Research Computing facilities. The process generally takes less than 24 hours, but may be delayed if we do not receive a quick response from your sponsor.
Sponsors requesting accounts will have their accounts created automatically once faculty membership is verified.
