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.
