The Network Account information sheet you receive at the start of your employment contains the user id and password you will use to access Hamilton resources, including My Hamilton (Campus Portal), email, the employee storage server (ESS), and Web Advisor. This sheet is mailed to new faculty at the physical address on file with the Dean's Office. It is given to staff upon their arrival, unless otherwise requested by the supervisor. If you did not receive your account details, please stop by the Help Desk (3rd floor of the Library) with your ID and you will be given another copy. It is important that you do not share this password with anyone.

Hamilton email addresses are in the form of first initial of the person's first name followed by the first seven characters of the person's last name, e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org. Due to duplicates, some email addresses may contain a person's middle initial. You can verify an address using the on-line directory.
Hamilton's current email system, HillConnect, is powered by Google Apps for Education.
Employee Storage Server (ESS) - Hamilton-d domain
Student Storage Server (SSS) - Hamilton-s domain
All registered students are given an account and 200 MB of space on this server. Please note: ESSand SSS are not intended to handle multimedia storage needs, e.g. video storage. ITS has other storage options to meet these needs.
