Overall System Status:
For most people, as soon as you become affiliated with the College, a Dartmouth Name Directory (DND) account is automatically created for you. The DND is what controls the creation or deletion of e-mail accounts and access to some restricted services. DND accounts are considered personal accounts.
E-mail addresses are the full name in the DND with periods between each name followed by @Dartmouth.edu.
Each department at the College, as defined by the Human Resources department code list, is entitled to one Dartmouth.edu e-mail account.
This form can also be used to create an account for a committee that is spanning multiple departments. These additional accounts will have a one year expiration, but may be renewed annually as appropriate. Applications must have an approved signature from the area that oversees the organization.
Many College-recognized organizations also have a need for a Dartmouth.edu e-mail account. To apply for an account for a College-recognized organization, download and complete the Application for an Organization DND Account form. These applications must have an approved signature from the area that oversees the organization.
Temporary employees who are actively working to fulfill the academic mission of Dartmouth can have a DND account. Examples of these types of people are temporary agency employees not paid directly by the College, unpaid research associates, consultants and faculty who hold positions at other institutions who are working in collaboration with a paid Dartmouth staff or faculty member. Friends and family members of Dartmouth employees and students are not eligible for sponsored accounts, unless they are actively helping to pursue Dartmouth's academic mission themselves.
Senior officers of the College must approve the creation of these accounts to ensure the request is a legitimate one. Because the DND controls access to many resources that are restricted to Dartmouth community members, ranging from Library resources to networking resources, only those people who are actually engaged in Dartmouth work should be granted an account. People with a sponsored DND account have all the rights and privileges a regular employee or student has, including using site-licensed software, purchasing items from Computer Sales and Service, and acquiring computing support. If accounts are granted inappropriately, the services that should be provided to those pursuing the mission of Dartmouth could be delayed.
Anyone who is not a student or paid employee, but who is helping to fulfill the academic mission of the College, may be eligible for an e-mail only account. These e-mail-only accounts allow fuller compliance with our license agreements and ensure better safety and integrity within our network.
