Change to Student Email
Used for CSULB Communications
In response to increasing phishing attacks and cyber scams, we will implement a change on August 2, 2018 that all official CSULB announcements and notices will be sent to your campus-provided “BeachMail” (Outlook) email account. This change means that official University email communications will be sent to your @student.csulb.edu email account.
As part of this change, you will no longer be able to assign a third-party email address (e.g., Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo, etc.) as your “preferred” email account in MyCSULB. However, if you wish to continue receiving official campus communication at your personal email accounts, you may Use Rules to Automatically Forward Messages from your BeachMail account to your preferred personal email account.
If you have any questions about this service update, please contact
DoIT-ServiceManagement@csulb.edu or the Technology Help Desk at (562) 985-4959.
We appreciate your understanding during this process as we work to improve our services and information security.
