Email for students

Undergraduate students may use Gmail at IU for email and other online communication services.

Graduate and professional students are provided Exchange accounts by default, but are also eligible for Gmail at IU accounts.

Undergraduate student employees, or undergraduates with a faculty or staff sponsor, may be eligible for Exchange email accounts. Graduate student academic appointees should see ARCHIVED: About student email accounts and IU employment.

When you graduate

For information about lifelong IU email addresses available to all IU alumni, see About IU Alumni Association email accounts.

Email for faculty and staff

Microsoft Exchange

Exchange accounts provide integrated messaging features, such as shared departmental calendars, in addition to email. Exchange accounts are available for staff, faculty, and graduate or professional students, and for sponsored undergraduate students. For details about accessing your Exchange mail, see Configure your mail client for Exchange Online.

Non-IU mail provider

You can use a non-IU mail provider, such as Hotmail, a personal Gmail account, or another third-party internet service provider (ISP). However, if you choose this option, it is unlikely that UITS or your department will be able to provide much help if you run into problems. Also, you are still responsible for reading email sent to your IU account; see About IU's policy on official communications from the university to students.

Whichever option you choose, be sure to set your preferred address so that your email will be directed to the right system. For more, see Change your primary email address.
