Alumni Email

  • Beginning with the class of 2010, all Boston University alumni will retain their login@bu.edu email address, which can be used as a forwarding address to an external email account OR it can be used as a full email account within BU Google Apps.
  • All other alumni will need to set up an Alumni Online Community account and password in order to obtain an Email Forwarding address. The account you create through this registration process will provide you with an account@alum.bu.edu address that you will configure to forward to an external e-mail address. Details are provided at the Alumni Online Community site.

Using the Alumni Online Community

All alums have access to the Alumni Online Community.

  • Beginning with the class of 2010, alumni will simply be able to log in to the Alumni Online Community with their BU login name and Kerberos password.
  • Alumni from previous classes will first need to register in order to set up an Alumni Online Community account and password. As described above, the account you created also forms the E-mail Forwarding address of account@alum.bu.edu. Registration details are provided at the Alumni Online Community site.
