Forrester: How to Access

Forrester

UCI Authorized Affiliates (i.e. current UCI students, faculty, and staff) need to create an account with Forrester to access the platform.  (You also need to be connected to UCI's network!)

Creating a Forrester account isn't intuitive, so here are the steps.
 

Step 1

Go to Forrester.

Click on Log In  [top right corner].



 

Step 2

In the Business Email Address field, enter your @uci email address. 

Don’t enter a password. 

 

Step 3

Once you enter your @uci email address, the password box disappears, and only the Log In button remains. 

Click on the Log In button. 

 

Step 4

You’ll be prompted to enter your UCInetID and password. 

 

Step 5

Fill in these fields to complete your account setup.
 

To access Forrester in the future, repeat Steps 1- 4.
