Accounts/Access & Email

Email is the primary means of communication between Faculty, Staff, and Students.

For students, an account is created when they apply; an email account is created after a student pays their ARD (Advanced Registration Deposit). The student email format will be username@live.kutztown.edu.

For the university community, the email address or username (first part of the email) is used to access university computers, networks, email, and services.

When resetting a password, it must be at least 12 characters long and have 3 of the 4 criteria:  Upper Case letter, Lower Case letter, Number or Symbol and cannot be any part of your name. 

Passwords are good for 180 days.

Call the IT Help Center with any questions or need assistance.
