Applying for an Email Account

You do not need to apply for a UMass Boston email account. It is created automatically once you become active in our HR system. You can look up your email address to see if it has been created yet and what it is. New users should consult our first time login instructions.

For a departmental email account, you must submit an Exchange Email Account Request Form (PDF). Once you have completed it, return it to the IT Service Desk in the Healey Library on the 3rd Floor (090-03-007).
