If you work or study at an Australian University you will be able to login to the Nectar Research Cloud using your institutional credentials. Access to the Nectar Research Cloud is enabled by the Australian Access Federation (AAF).

Logging in

To log in, go to the Nectar Cloud Dashboard home page and follow the prompts.

AAF Authentication

Your AAF credentials are the same as your institutional username and password. If your University or organisation is a part of the AAF, they will appear in the list that is shown after clicking 'Log in via AAF'. 

If your institution is not a member of the AAF, talk to your local IT team to arrange access.

If you have any issues contact the Nectar Research Cloud HelpDesk.

Login Problems

If your research institution is a member but you still can't login, you can contact IT Service department of your own research institution. They can provide support for issues with your login credentials. Alternatively, you can lodge a ticket with the Nectar Cloud help desk here.
