Accounts for affiliated staff
King’s Affiliate Account Request: New, renew or convert accounts
If you work closely with, but are not directly employed by King’s you may be eligible for an affiliate account. Affiliate accounts enable more effective cooperation through access to King’s systems and resources.
King’s IT offer the affiliate account process, (previously known as the RF2 Form) via the self-service portal on RemedyForce. If you think you are eligible for an affiliate account you should ask your contact within King’s to initiate the account creation process for you.
For the purposes of this process, “affiliate staff” are staff who do not appear on King’s HR records, and therefore do not automatically qualify for a King’s email address. Standard staff conversely, do appear on the HR records.
A range of affiliate account management tasks can be completed using the online form. To access it please visit 8888.kcl.ac.uk and then select the "King’s Affiliate Account Request" option.
- If a new affiliate requires a King’s email address, an affiliate account will be needed. Please fill out this form on the user’s behalf and select “Application for a new affiliate account”
- If you already have an affiliate account and wish to renew it, or if you are renewing it on behalf of a colleague, please select “Application to renew an affiliate account”
- If you currently have a standard account and are due to leave the employment of King’s, but still require to have an association with King’s, your account will need to be converted to an affiliate account. Please select “Convert my standard account to an affiliate account”
- This form can also be used if you have both a standard and an affiliate account and you would like to merge the two. Please select the relevant conversion option as appropriate.
Once submitted, your request will be sent for approval. Once approval has been received the IT Service Desk will complete your request.
Please note that typically, Professional Services affiliate accounts are valid for one year, Teaching or Research accounts are valid for three years. Account holders will receive an email to their affiliate account to warn them when their account is due to expire and may wish to set up mail forwarding if they are unlikely to check it regularly.
If you require any assistance with the form then please contact the IT Service Desk by calling 020 7848 8888 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively please see our user guides on filling out the form located here, and advice for people designated as authorisers here.
