At The University of Alabama, student e-mail accounts are hosted at Crimson, a Google Apps for Education domain. Students have e-mail addresses with the Crimson branding (userID@crimson.ua.edu) and the familiar GMAIL interface.
All University of Alabama students have e-mail accounts on Crimson. This includes all incoming students, applicants, and anyone who has been enrolled at The University of Alabama for a course.
Crimson mail is accessed with the same login credentials as myBama. You will see an icon for Crimson when you log in at http://mybama.ua.edu.
If you are primarily a faculty or staff member but are currently enrolled in classes, you will be provided a Crimson e-mail account with the same privileges as any other University student.
We currently advise faculty and staff with student status not to forward Bama or departmental account e-mail to the Crimson e-mail address.
Crimson accounts are lifelong e-mail accounts with no expiration.
