Sponsorship Manager

Sponsor individuals for a Stanford University Network Identification (SUNetID) or sponsor email service for a department or function

In September 2024, rates will change for several technology services provided by University IT. View proposed FY25 rate changes.

Sponsorship Manager is an administrative web application. It allows faculty, managers, and authorized individuals to sponsor people for computing services, as long as the person to be sponsored meets basic eligibility requirements.

The following services can be sponsored with Sponsorship Manager:

  • Account (SUNet ID and email)
  • Email service for a department or function (shared email)

A full account, which includes email and services, carries a monthly charge. For this service the sponsor must have requisitions authority for a current university account. Other services are free and require only that the sponsor be a faculty member, manager, or an individual who has been granted the privilege to sponsor. Sponsorships are  maintained through the application.



  • Sponsorship of a SUNet ID for someone who is not university-eligible, such as a contractor, consultant, or visiting faculty member
  • Sponsorship of a shared email account for a department or function
  • Able to view, change, or end current sponsorships for which you are the sponsor or the contact

Designed for
