By default, mailing list addresses are firstname.lastname@example.org. If an email address will be used in an organizational role or will be widely published, you may request an email address that is shortened to email@example.com.
In order to be eligible for the short mailing list address, some or all of the following criteria must be satisfied:
- The mailing list is integrally involved in the business of the University.
- The mailing list maintains a wide subscription base.
- The mailing list address is published in print or electronically to large groups of people.
You must create a mailing list at lists.uchicago.edu before you can request a short firstname.lastname@example.org address. Once you have received notification that the mailing list has been created, you may request a short address by filling out the form below. We will respond to your request within three (3) business days of application. The request must be made by the administrator or owner of the mailing list.
