About Student Email Addresses

Since students use their Otis College IDs (Xnumbers) to log into most Otis services, it is easy to forget your actual email address. Student email addresses generally consist of these elements:

first initial + last name @ student.otis.edu = jotis@student.otis.edu

In case that email address already exists, a number will be added to differentiate between the accounts:

first initial + last name + number @ student.otis.edu = jotis5@student.otis.edu

You can find it by logging into the Dashboard. Then click on your name in the top right corner and view settings.


In addition to the Dashboard, here are some alternate ways to find your email address:

Webmail

  • Select Options and then See All Options. It will take you the My Account page.
  • OR send yourself an email

O-Space

  • Click on your name in the upper right-hand corner. It will take you to the Edit User Profile page.
  • OR find your name in the People directory.

Self Service

  • Go to the Personal Information menu and click on View Email Addresses. It should be listed there.
