Alumni and Visitors
Alumni are welcome to use the computers in the IRCs and Library. Remember it is a privilege and not a right. CUS staff cannot provide assistance to alumni on such things as how to use applications or use the computers. Also, printing services are not available to alumni.
While on campus, alumni have access to library resources. However, access via a proxy server is not available. Alumni who are outside the Portland area can contact one of Reed's librarians. They are happy to help locate libraries in the area who can provide guest access to the needed resources.
Using your alumni account is easy - it's the same as the Kerberos account you use to access IRIS. For more information on this, visit our Kerberos page.
During especially busy times (finals, before thesis deadlines, beginning of the year) when the computer labs are crowded, alumni are required to yield to current students. Remember, these resources are here for current students and faculty. CUS and T-watchers are here to help current members of the Reed community. We may be unable to offer assistance to alumni during busy times.
There are two email-checking computers at the entrance to the ETC building with email and internet access. Guests are strongly suggested to use those. CUS or the T-watcher on duty may be able to login official guests into a limited IRC account if there are open terminals.
