Can I Create a Custom Email Address?


Possibly. The Cornell Optional Email Alias service allows faculty, staff, and trustees to create a Cornell email address based on their name. That new address will take the form of an alias plus "@cornell.edu" For example, phil.schmertz@cornell.edu. The optional alias does not replace your NetID or your NetID@cornell.edu address. Email sent to the alias or to your NetID address is delivered to your NetID account.

If you have a legitimate need for a separate email address for a university department or registered student organization, you may apply for an Exchange Group Account.
