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.

Parents and Guests

Guests can connect to the ReedXenia wireless network for use on personal devices by following the instructions found here.

T-Watchers in the ETC can help guests logon to IRC machines during business hours.
