AD accounts are available to all UNH faculty and staff.  Students should use their WILDCAT accounts to log into the clusters and the VPN.

How do I get an AD/VPN account disabled?

The Human Resources employee termination process is directly related to disabling of computer accounts.  On an employee's termination date his or her AD account will be automatically disabled.  If you want an account disabled prior to an employee leaving the University, please call the UNH IT Service Desk at 862-4242. Click here for more information on the deactivation of computer accounts.
