Requesting Accounts

To request an account(s) for you or your group, please have your Department Administrator provide a list of users to the HSPH Helpdesk at 432-HELP or helpdesk@hsph.harvard.edu.

Accellion Quickstart Guide:

  • Accelion URL: http://accellion.sph.harvard.edu
  • Your login is your email address (i.e., jdoe@hsph.harvard.edu).
  • Your password is the same as your Novell password.
  • Each user has a 5 GB limit.
  • Each file will remain for 7 days.
  • If you are exchanging files that contain high risk confidential information, please remember that retrieved files may not be stored locally on a laptop, desktop machine, or other local storage device.  They must be saved to personal or shared network drives (P:/ and S:/ drives).
  • Files which are saved to the Accellion server cannot be accessed or recovered by the IT department.
  • There is an excellent user guide available after you log into the secure file transfer website.
