All incoming students upon deposit or registration are automatically assigned an email address. New faculty and staff members need to go to the Computer Support Center (CC113) with their ID card and a copy of their contract to request an e-mail account.
If you are unsure of what your e-mail username is, type your last name into the search box in the top right corner, click the E-mail radio button and click search. You can search for your name there, or you can call (860) 768-5999.
The e-mail account information is very important, as it is not only used for checking e-mail, but it is also used for connecting to the wireless network on campus and accessing the library databases. Students, faculty and staff get 500MB for e-mail storage. E-mail accounts include a calendar, contact list and task (to do list) that can be accessed from any computer and will easily sync with a mobile device.Students are responsible for checking their own University of Hartford e-mail accounts. All official communication from the University, including e-bills and e-mails from professors, will be sent to the University address.
E-mail space is limited to 500MB on the new HawkMail system.
Graduating students (or those no longer registered for classes) are eligible to retain their @hartford.edu email account for one year, at which time an email is sent providing approximately three week notice regarding pending deletion. For example, Students graduating May 2012, notice will be sent approximately May 2013 indicating an approximate June 2013 deletion date.
For any questions or problems with your account, contact the Computer Support Center at (860) 768-5999 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
