Carleton Account & Email (cunet, cmail)

Carleton provides accounts to all community members to access various services, including email. Carleton Employees have accounts and students have accounts.

The university uses Office 365 (O365) as its official mail server. It is sometimes called cunet, Exchange or Outlook for Faculty and Staff, and cmail for students. As of Jan. 2019, you have a 50GB email quota., and email addresses and aliases are managed by ITS. Please see the ITS Email Support for assistance.

We strongly advise all Carleton employees and students to use Carleton’s email for Carleton’s business. We discourage forwarding Carleton email or communicating via a non-Carleton email provider.

SCS has its own legacy SCS email server. Many of the faculty and staff have addresses which signifies the SCS email server. Contact the SCS Tech Staff for assistance with this email.
