Getting a UCSD E-mail Address
March 23, 2012 11:49:33 AM PDT
UCSD provides an e-mail address for faculty, staff and students, as well as many affiliates. Your affiliation and department define the type of e-mail account and support services available to you.
Faculty and staff
You may receive e-mail service from your own department or centrally from Administrative Computing & Telecommunications (ACT). Contact your supervisor, system administrator, or IT support person for information on the services from your department.
If your department uses the central e-mail services provided by ACT, see how to open an account:
- In many departments, the system administrator creates e-mail accounts. Please see that person first if your department has such a contact.
- If your department doesn't have a designated person to assist you with a new e-mail account, and you are a staff member, postdoc, research staff or faculty member with a UCSD, SIO, UCSD Medical School, or UCSD Medical Center ID, you can obtain an e-mail account at the combined ACMS/ ACT Help Desk during business hours. Bring your UCSD ID card. If you don't have one, bring your driver's license and a letter on university letterhead from your department, confirming your position and/or affiliation.
All undergraduate students and some graduate students receive e-mail service through ACMS.
Please contact the Retirement Resource Center for more information.
