Student Email

[[Element: ]]

Get Connected!

The Kirkwood student email system is the primary way you'll receive official communication from the college.

Important information from your department and notifications from advising, enrollment, and financial aid will be sent to your student email, not via postal mail.

Email Format

The format of your Kirkwood student email address is:

firstname-lastname@student.kirkwood.edu

Example: joe-smith@student.kirkwood.edu

If your first and last name are being used already, a number will be added to your email address to make it unique. 

If you are accessing your student email for the first time, you'll first need to set up your Kirkwood account. On your first login to student email, you will be prompted to set up your email account and to choose a recovery option.

  • Log into your student email via MyHub. Use your k-number and password and click on Student Email.
  • Once you login to MyHub, use the student email link to automatically log you in to your email account.
  • You can also automatically login to Talon using MyHub.

If you are experiencing issues accessing your student email or have any questions, please contact the Student Help Desk located in the Allsop Computer Lab, room 131 of Nielsen Hall.

Getting Started

MyHub is the simplest and fastest way we recommend to login to your student email. Once you login to MyHub, use the student email link to automatically login to your email account.

Other Options

If you want to receive student email notifications on your mobile device or have your student email sent directly to your email app you are already using, there are options available for that too. You can download the free Microsoft Outlook App or use your device's native email app.
