Bowdoin E-mail Lists

The following administrative e-mail mailing lists are currently active. These lists are updated automatically.  Only faculty and staff who have an e-mail address printed in the Directory or in the On-line Directory  are certain to be on these lists. New names are added to the database when new accounts are created.

The use of these lists is limited to official College business and announcements. It is the responsibility of the sender to use these lists judiciously.

To send to a list, address your e-mail to the list's address. Example: to send e-mail to all support staff, address your e-mail to "support_staff@bowdoin.edu".

Please Note: You must use your Bowdoin email account (no Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo etc.) to send to campus lists. Using Webmail is the safest way from off campus to make sure your email reaches the desired list. 

Tips and Guidelines for use of these lists are available online. Errors or omissions should be reported to the HelpDesk at x3030
