Email Policy and Information

Email as the Primary Means of Contact

The Cullen College of Engineering will use your UH e-mail alias as the primary means to contact you and keep you informed about college news. This policy does not apply to students taking not-for-credit certificate and continuing education programs. In addition, you will be able to use this alias after you graduate.

What is your UH email alias?

As a student at the University of Houston, you have been assigned a UH e-mail alias that points to the e-mail address you provided to the university when you applied for admissions (it is blank if you did not). E-mail messages addressed to your alias are automatically forwarded to your preferred e-mail account. For example, if you provided joecougar [at] (joecougar[at]aol[dot]com) to UH, any e-mail sent to your new alias will automatically be sent to joecougar [at] (joecougar[at]aol[dot]com). UH will use your alias to send you important university information such as emergency closings or information from your faculty and department.
