Student & Employee Email Accounts & Quotas

Email accounts are created for Kenyon faculty, staff and students when they are first employed or enrolled at Kenyon. Special student accounts and affiliated scholar accounts are created upon request and can be extended by the Registrar's office. Kenyon Google Mail are 30 GB for faculty, staff, and students, and the quota is shared between the account's Gmail and Google Drive services.

Requests for a student organization or special project email account are made in person with the Director of Student Activities & Organizations at the Student Affairs Office (SAO). Those requests are then sent by Student Activities directly to the LBIS systems manager to process. Students will be notified by the systems manager when the account has been created. Student organization or special project accounts also have a 30 GB quota.

When You Leave Kenyon

Graduates can keep their email accounts until the end of July. These accounts do not require a Kenyon network login to access their Kenyon Google Mail. 

You can now download a .zip archive of all your Kenyon Gmail messages. 

Employees who leave Kenyon automatically will have their email account extended for 90 days after ending employment. At the end of that time they can request to have their incoming Kenyon email forwarded to an Internet email account for an extra 90 days by sending an email request to helpline@kenyon.edu. It should contain the following information:

  • Full name
  • Kenyon username
  • New email address
  • Current U.S. mail address
  • Current phone number

At the end of the second 90 days, Kenyon's forwarding service will terminate.

Quota on Email Messages Sent to Public Distribution Lists

There is a 1MB quota on email messages sent out to any public dis list. Anything larger will not be sent, and you will have it bounced back with an error message stating "too large." Avoid sending large images in messages to a dis list because it can easily exceed the quota limit.
