Email addresses for LMU are normally [email protected] For example if your name was Abraham Lincoln, your email address would be [email protected] Any new student, faculty or staff who are unsure of their LMU e-mail address should contact the Help Desk at 423-869-7411.
Students, faculty and staff can all access email through MyLMU.
The password scheme for new accounts is capital LMU and the first letter of your lastname
followed by your 8 digit birthday. For example, if your name was Abraham Lincoln and
you were born on February 12, 1809, your username would be abraham.lincoln and your
password would be LMUl02121809 – a lower case ‘L’ followed by 02121809. We recommend
changing this password as soon as possible.
If we do not have your birth date on file, it is a randomly generated pin that was created in the absence of one. To find out what this is, or if you wish to call and provide your birth date, please call the Help Desk at 423.869.7411 and we will attempt to resolve it for you.
