GT GitHub access is automatically granted to Georgia Tech users. End users must log into the GT GitHub server at least once to activate their account.  Once the user has signed in at least once, you will see them as a valid collaborator (user) to add to your organization or repository.

Users must meet the following requirements:

  • Users must have a valid GT Account
  • Users must be an active student, faculty, or staff member
  • Users must have signed into the GT GitHub service at least once.

Access to GT GitHub is controlled with your GT Account and password.  Georgia Tech offers a campus-wide student license that covers students, faculty, and staff.

The GT GitHub Service does not allow for anonymous public access or for external (non-GT) collaborators.  Please use GitHub.com for these needs.
