Group Accounts

Various groups on campus may wish to have a generic account setup to communicate with members of the campus community. Examples include generic department emails, research projects, Registered Student Organizations (RSOs), and other applications. Generally, users utilize these accounts to provide multiple people access to the same mailbox to respond to messages. 

Requesting A Group Account

A full-time UNLV Faculty or Staff member can request a new group account by submitting a New Group Email Account service request.

Once submitted, the IT Help Desk will contact the sponsor to verify the account's availability and provide account information once it is created.

Group Account Password Resets

In the event any of the login information is lost or forgotten, the account sponsor / owner can contact the IT Help Desk for assistance. The IT Help Desk can only assist the account's owner.

Changing Account Ownership

To transfer account ownership of a group account, the account owner must contact the IT Help Desk. If the account owner is not known or has departed the university, a department leader, such as a Dean or Director, must request the ownership change.
