My Email Account

To log into your University email account go to and use the format rather than your Durham email address as displayed below.

As a student or member of staff, you get a Durham University email account with email and calendar functions and an allocation of storage space. Check your Durham email regularly as colleges, departments and service providers (e.g. the Library and CIS) get in touch with you at this address and you don’t want to miss anything important.

Your email address will look like one of the following: (name, initial of second name and surname) OR (name and surname if no second name)

To check what your email address is, just visit: Enter your CIS username and password and your email address will be displayed there.

For more information about your University email account and some useful links to help you get the most of our its capabilities, take a look at the Email service catalogue entry.
