UMD Email and IT Resources

Email Accounts

All students are required to open UMD email accounts, even if they already have email accounts with non-campus systems, e.g., Gmail, Yahoo, AOL, or other.

Information about setting up your UMD Directory ID and password is found here. When providing your e-mail address for departmental use, use your UMD account address instead of other mail system addresses. Students may still use another mail system to receive UMD account messages. Learn more about changing your official email forwarding address here.

Students who have any problems with their email account should contact the Division of Information Technology Help Desk at (301) 405-1500 or visit their website.

IT Resources for Students

The University of Maryland Division of Information Technology provides a wealth of IT resources and downloadable software for UMD students. To learn more about these resources, please visit their website at
