Novell Accounts

Starting August 30, students will no longer use a Novell username/password to access computers in the library or instructional computer labs. Instead, students will use their CWL based authentication. Click Here for more details.


A Novell account is required for UBCO staff, faculty in order to access computers on campus, and provides access to printing services, shared instructional files, and secure personal storage. If you need more storage for academic purposes, you can request a limit increase by contacting UBC IT Okanagan.

Getting Started

To request a Novell account for a new employee, please submit a ticket to the UBC Self-Service Portal.
