EXTERNAL USER PROGRAM
CNI welcomes external users who wish to use our facilities! Our user fee rates for Industry can be found here. External academic users pay Columbia internal rates plus an administrative fee of 20%.
1. All prospective external users of any CNI Shared Facilities begin the application process by signing the External User Agreement and completing the New User Information form. This starts the process of obtaining a Columbia ID and UNI (University Network ID) so the prospective user can take safety training and gain access to the labs. Please email the signed agreement to Melody Gonzalez firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. CNI staff will submit a request for a UNI.
3. Once you have your UNI, go to Kent Hall and obtain your Columbia ID card.
