An email alias is essentially a nickname or a pointer (similar to a computer application shortcut) that is attached to your University of Minnesota Internet ID. It acts as a forwarding email address in some cases; email messages sent to your firstname.lastname@example.org will arrive at your main email account. An email alias does NOT work as a login on UMN sites or with Google Calendar or Google Drive.
Only active staff or faculty may submit requests for aliases.
Aliases may also be added to departmental accounts.
Note: Departmental groups are able to request 15 character IDs in request itself as of 3/1/2017.
Student Groups do NOT qualify for aliases.
Aliases may be from 3 to 15 characters in length, with no special characters (periods, dashes, hyphens, and so on).
Please provide at least 3 choices. Consider that all aliases must be unique, so there's a possibility that one of your choices may already be in use.
