Technology Q+A: Before Coming to School

Before You Get to Campus

  • Login to your myMail account. You can find your username and initial password in your EKU Direct account under ‘Personal Information.’
  • Reset the email password. Make it at least 10-12 characters long with upper- and lower-case letters, numbers, and at least one symbol.
  • Setup your email and calendar on your computer and mobile devices.
  • Be sure your computer operating system (e.g., Windows, Apple) and mobile devices are up-to-date.
  • Backup your computer and create a backup plan for your time in school. We recommend a monthly plan and keep at least 3 backups as you go along.
  • Get connected to EKU IT to stay up on what’s happening with your technology resources at school, including outages and maintenance:
