Network & Accounts

Kerberos Accounts

Kerberos is a system that lets you use one username and password to access many services. It was designed to provide both security and convenience. Using Kerberos means that you have to remember fewer passwords and type your password less frequently.

For more information on Kerberos and how to get an account visit our Kerberos page.

Need to reset your password? Account Tools is the place to go.

Network Registrations

The first time you try to access any webpage, your web browser will take you to the Reed Network Registration page where you can register your computer. Please make sure to register using your Reed kerberos network username and password and not as a guest, or you will have limited access to the network. You will be asked to register once for the wired network and once for the wireless network. If you have any questions about registration please contact CUS at x7525 or cus@reed.edu.

Wireless

Since wireless is now becoming more and more the standard for accessing internet, Reed provides wireless internet connectivity in most buildings and some other areas of campus (see our coverage map here).

There are two networks available at Reed. For information about which one you should use and how to connect, visit our wireless page.

Alumni Information

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.

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.

Forgot your password? Contact the alumni office at x7589 or alumni@reed.edu.

Guest Information

Reed guests can access the internet on the ReedXenia network. Instructions for connecting are on our network page.
