The Affiliates Procedure is designed to give the appropriate privileges to those who do not have a student or employment contact with the University but who have a relationship with it and need access to systems and services for that purpose.

The procedure also ensures that access to IT systems are controlled in a manner compliant with the University’s licence agreements and data is handled in accordance with UK General Data Protection Regulations.
