Accounts

BMB or Chemistry LDAP Account

All graduate students, staff, postdocs, and faculty in the Departments of Chemistry and Biochemistry & Molecular Biology can request a Chemistry or BMB LDAP account.

Undergraduate students currently enrolled in courses in either Department have an account set up for them.
