Groups on the General Computing Network

Groups on the General Computing Network (GCN) give access to various resources in the environment (e.g., printers and applications). Information Technology Services (ITS) creates default groups for every department on campus. A Department Technology Coordinator (DTC) can request additional groups as needed. The table below shows the default rights for the default groups.

How to Request a New Group

The DTC should put in a request through 6-TECH with the name of the group and the department that will own the group. Contact 6-TECH at 6-TECH@uncg.edu or (336) 256-TECH (8324).
