Check Your Duke Email

All official university communications will be sent to your Duke email account. Get in the habit of checking it regularly so you are staying in-the-know.
Fun fact: You actually have 2 Duke email addresses! They are typically either firstname.lastname@duke.edu or netID@duke.edu. Both will route to the same inbox, it's just a preference of which you prefer to give out (some event registrations or Zoom rooms will ask for a specific format). For more information on how to access your email, please contact the Office of Information Technology (OIT).
