Create Your Own Temple Email Address

Make it easy for people to remember your Temple email address by creating custom addresses. When you received your AccessNet account, you were given an account name that is displayed as your e-mail address. All Temple email users have the option to create an alternative email name known as an alias. An alias appears to be a separate e-mail address but messages are sent to your same account name account.


Aliases are handy when you meet new colleagues or want to give students a way to contact you. You can also tell your students about this option so you can recognize their addresses when they send you mail.


To create up to five aliases, go to TUportal and click on Cherry & White Update. You can also go to and click on Update Your Entry. For more details, see Customize Your E-Mail Address.

If you have any questions, contact the Help Desk through the TUhelp web site at or call 215-204-8000.
