Email Accounts

Hampshire College provides email accounts to all faculty, staff, students, and alums as a means of fostering communications in support of academic, research, and administrative needs. Students are provided accounts upon enrollment at the College and may retain accounts while enrolled and as alums. All official correspondence from the College sent via email will be sent to these accounts. For details about account eligibility and retention, please see the guidelines listed in the Email Account Policy page.
