Customize Your Personal E-mail Address

When your account is created, you are assigned two e-mail addresses:

  • one address includes your AccessNet username. For example, if your AccessNet username is tua00000, your e-mail address is tua00000@temple.edu.

  • the second address is an e-mail alias, which is a customized e-mail address that you can use instead of your AccessNet username. If is its not in use, you are assigned an alias of your firstname.lastname@temple.edu. For example, russell.conwell@temple.edu.

    Note that you can create four additional e-mail aliases for your account.
