    Account Creation

    Your Duquesne e-mail account is your primary means of communication between you and other Duquesne community members such as advisors, instructors, classmates, students, co-workers, and associates. DU Email is the official vehicle for the University to communicate with you regarding important issues including billing of student accounts and campus emergencies, news, and events 

    Your email account will be automatically created when you have been entered into our administrative system, Banner. As a student this will be when you are deposited, as a faculty, administrator, or staff member it will be when you are made active in Banner by Human Resources.

    The password for this account is controlled by our multipass system. If you need to reset your multipass you can do that here:

    Mass Mailing information

    When University departments need to send emails to a large group of people, (more than 300) please notify the help desk during your planning phase. Large mass emails can obstruct the flow of normal email during peak use hours. Do not send a large email via Outlook. We use Lyris distribution lists or our Student Mass Mailer application for these purposes because these methods are automatically delayed until 8 p.m. to avoid this conflict.

    People that intend on sending mass mailings should abide by the chart below to not cause unnecessary Spam during peak use hours:
