How do I obtain an AFS home directory if I don't already have one?

ITS manages AFS personal storage at the University, which is used as the default home directory on CAEN Linux computers, and is required in order to log in and run software. If you do not already have an AFS home directory, you can request one using the ITS AFS Self-Provisioning Tool.
