Email & Calendar

Account Creation

Email accounts are automatically created for new students, faculty, and staff. Elon Alumni who graduated in 2010 and beyond retain their Elon email address for life. If you have any questions concerning your email account, please contact the Technology Service Desk at 336-278-5200.

Organizational Accounts

Campus Technologies does not offer email accounts to organizations, but at the request of a Faculty or Staff member, we can attach an email alias to an account. This will be a functional email address (yourorganization@elon.edu), but instead of being a stand-alone account, it will deliver email to your advisor’s inbox. To request this service, please contact the Technology Service Desk at 336-278-5200.

Faculty and Staff

Faculty and staff email is powered by Microsoft 365. Faculty and staff may configure their email accounts in Outlook 2016Mac Mail, on iOS devices, or Outlook Web App (OWA) to manage their email.

You can now encrypt emails through Microsoft 365. View our documentation to learn how!

Students and Alumni

Student and alumni email is powered by Gmail, which is part of Google Apps for Education. Students are able to retain their Elon email address for as long as they like - there is no need to start a new account after graduation. In addition to email, Elon's partnership with Google provides students with a host of web-based applications. Students may learn about configuring email accounts to mobile devices running iOS by following these instructions. Google Apps is a package of applications that makes communicating and collaborating at school easier and more efficient. Learn more about Google Apps.
