Hull Account - FAQ
This article explains answers to a number of frequently asked questions regarding Hull accounts.
Hull is a type of account that can only be used for authentication. There are no services intrinsically provisioned to Hull accounts. There are a few services that require only authentication for access (such as DHCP and front page access to Chalk and the University portal). Hull account users will be able to access these services.
Hull Administrators have the ability to create Hull accounts for people who do not hold a University affiliation but need limited access to University systems. Additionally, all University faculty, students, and staff accounts transition into Hull accounts once the faculty, student, or staff member leaves the University and the account goes through closure.
Hull Administrators may access the Hull Administrative tool here:
No. Every member of the University gets only one CNetID. Your Hull account provides you with that CNetID. There are several ways to get additional services if you hold a Hull account: if you become a faculty, staff, or student of the University, your Hull account will expand to include the services that your new status allows you to have; your Hull Administrator can provision you for access to services for which you have been given permission. Some systems are provisioned locally— the administrator may simply need your CNetID in order to set you up to access the service.
Do all Trusted Agents have the ability to set up Hull accounts? How can I become a Hull Administrator?
No. Some Trusted Agents are Hull Administrators, but there are other Hull Administrators that are not Trusted Agents. If you need Hull Administrator status, please contact the TAG admin team at firstname.lastname@example.org with the specifics and we will be happy to help find the best solution for your needs.
