Your New myWilmU Student Email Address
Your new myWilmU student email address will consist of:
- Your First Initial
- Your Full Last Name
Up to 15 characters. Last Names longer than 15 characters will be truncated. Hyphens, apostrophes, or other special characters will be excluded.
- 3 digits (randomly assigned)
These three digits are to ensure no duplicates, and have no relationship to any other student information. For your security, they are not part of or based on any other personally-identifiable information in your student record. These digits cannot be manually chosen, requested, nor changed.
You will learn your new, full email address once your account is created and assigned to you.
- If the student’s name is James Brown
his email address may be email@example.com
- If the student’s name is Susan Thompson
her email address may be firstname.lastname@example.org
- If the student’s name is Margaret Williamson-Burdette
her email address may be email@example.com
Note that this last name is both longer than 15 characters and contains a hyphen. Only the first 15 characters is included, and the hyphen is excluded.
- If the student’s name is Antonio Garcia-Pérez
his email address may be firstname.lastname@example.org
Note that this last name contains the special character é, which is replaced by the corresponding letter e without the accent.

More About myWilmU Student Email Accounts
- Use your new myWilmU email right away to get all email from Wilmington University, including from your instructors for Spring 2017 and Summer 2017 courses.
- Access your new email account on the web via the myWilmU portal. More info…
- Use your new myWilmU login account to setup your new email account on your desktop software or mobile devices (instructions coming soon).
- All your instructors, advisors, and Academic Colleges and University departments will start using your new myWilmU email address to send you email as soon as you get your account. Systems like Blackboard and our Mass/Emergency Notification system, which we regularly use to email you, will be automatically updated with your new email address.
- All email messages sent your old @wildcats.wilmu.edu will be automatically redirected to your new myWilmU account, for the remaining life of your old account. See what happens to your old @wildcats.wilmu.edu email account below.
A Special Note About Email Forwarding
- If you have setup your @wildcats.wilmu.edu to forward to your messages to an alternate account, this forwarding will not be configured for your new account. You will need to log in to myWilmU to access your email and re-configure forwarding if desired.
- If you have setup forwarding from your @wildcats.wilmu.edu email, you may be used to receiving your student email at your forwarded address, and therefore may not immediately realize you are no longer receiving your student email. Please be sure to log in to myWilmU to access your new email account as soon as you are notified that it is ready.
- Forwarding your messages automatically to a different email address is not recommended. Wilmington University cannot be responsible for delivery of important messages from your instructors, College, or administrative offices to the forwarding account.
- Alternately, you can set up your desktop or mobile email software/app to get and send email from your new myWilmU account.
What Will Happen To Your @wildcats.wilmu.edu Email Account
- All email sent to your @wildcats email address will be delivered to your new myWilmU inbox.
- No new messages will be delivered to your @wildcats.wilmu.edu address.
- All messages will continue to be redirected to your myWilmU until the end of the life of your old account (see below).
- Your @wildcats email account will continue to remain available for you via WebCampus to access or move your old messages.
- No messages in your old inbox or folders will be automatically moved to your new myWilmU account.
- You can import your old messages on your own if you wish. See Importing Messages from Other Accounts for more info..
- You will have access to your @wildcats saved email through September 2017 (approximate).
When all student service functions and processes are complete for Spring and Summer 2017, we will retire WebCampus, and therefore, no longer support @wildcats email access.
- Your @wildcats.wilmu.edu email password will no longer be synced with your WebCampus password (but you can still sign on via WebCampus). This may affect you if you use desktop or mobile device software/apps to receive your email.
- If you change your WebCampus password, your @wildcats.wilmu.edu email account password will not be automatically updated or changed.
- If you change your @wildcats.wilmu.edu password using your email account settings, your WebCampus password will not be automatically updated or changed.
