Customize email address
3. Customize your KU email address.
While you cannot change your KU Online ID (a123b456), you can create an alias for your KU email address.
An alias is a nickname for your permanent email address; after creating an alias, you can share that email address with others and messages sent to that account will go to your official KU email account.
All students are encouraged to create an appropriate and professional email alias that can be used on resumes and in other academic and professional situations. For example, a common alias format is firstname.lastname@example.org.
