The Online TAF (Temporary Affiliate Form) temporarily provides non-UC Davis individuals with UC Davis Kerberos accounts, wireless access, and email addresses.

The CS Systems Support Group uses campus computing account IDs to secure machines within Computer Science. You may be asked to fill out a Temporary Affiliate Form for any guest, so they may gain access to a CS server. Please see this page for more information on obtaining a TAF:

Once your guest has obtained a campus computing account, please have them send their campus ID to us to add to your server.

For guests who need temporary wireless, we suggest the UC Davis Guest Wireless.
