Email Accounts

How to establish and set up a UCD (mail) account:

Student accounts: Established automatically at registration.

Staff accounts: Once you have received confirmation that you are in the UCD payroll system you can create your UCD account. This account is both your email ID and your kerberos account for other UCD services.

Establishing your account:

Please make a note of:

  • Your email address
  • Your login or user i.d. (may be different than your email address)
  • Your Password: You may forget this, so commit it to memory, write it down in a safe place, or use a service such as KeePass. Kerberos passwords can be reset through a series of challenge questions otherwise a password change token must be issued by UCD and can take up to 24 hours.
