- When your myWilmU email account is created, you will receive notification by email message to your personal/alternate email address (the email address you provided on your Application for Admission).

Your myWilmU Student Email Address
Your 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 full email address once your account is created and assigned to you.
Your email address and password is the same as your myWilmU / Self-Service login and password, which you received after you were first admitted to Wilmington University. More about your myWilmU login account.

What Happened To @wildcats.wilmu.edu Email Accounts
All Wilmington University students or alumni who held a @wildcats.wilmu.edu email account were issued new email accounts ending in @my.wilmu.edu in March 2017. These accounts replaced the former @wildcats.wilmu.edu email accounts.
- Your @wildcats.wilmu.edu email is no longer accessible since the retirement of WebCampus in October 2017. Contact our Technology Support for additional information about your old @wildcats account if needed.
- 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).
- If you used email forwarding on your @wildcats.wilmu.edu email account:
- If you had setup your @wildcats.wilmu.edu to forward to your messages to an alternate account, this forwarding was not configured for your @mywilmu 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.
