University Email Address (@wustl)

With the understanding that email has become a primary communication vehicle, the University developed a comprehensive email addressing convention that, for mail routing purposes, establishes a standard approach to name selection in conjunction with the "" address. The advantages to all of us, in particular those students with multiple majors and faculty and staff members engaged in multidisciplinary projects, include:

  • The continued promotion of our University as Washington University in St. Louis;
  • The provision of a single, central electronic address book; and
  • The opportunity for people external to the University, and those internal, to more easily contact members of the University community.
