Email accounts are automatically created for all students. It is important that you familiarize yourself with email before school starts.
You log into your email account with your NetID (the part of your email address before "@stthomas.edu") and a password.
To access your email for the first time:
- Create your own unique password and "security questions" at http://www.stthomas.edu/new
The "security questions" will help you reset your email password if you forget it.
(You will need a "claim code." You should have been provided your claim code some time after you were admitted to St. Thomas. If you do not have it anymore, contact International Recruiting and Admissions if you are a new undergraduate student and your graduate program if you are a new graduate student. You will not need your claim code again after creating your email account.)
- Next, log in to http://mail.stthomas.edu
- That is it – your account is ready for you to use!
Your NetID and your email password are very important.
You can use them to log into any computer on campus, and most password-protected UST web sites.
Murphy is our self-service system for students. Murphy allows you to access course placement exams, grades, and more. It is important that you familiarize yourself with Murphy before school starts.
You log into Murphy with your St. Thomas ID (a 9‑digit number) and a PIN (a 6‑digit number).
(You may have been provided a Temporary PIN some time after you were admitted to St. Thomas. If you do not have it anymore, contact International Recruiting and Admissions if you are a new undergraduate student and your graduate program if you are a new graduate student.)
Setting Up Murphy With A Temporary PIN:
Use your St. Thomas ID and Temporary PIN the first time you log in.** Once you click Login, you will be asked create a new PIN--private and easy to remember.
You will also be prompted to create two security questions. With these, you can reset your PIN if you forget it.
**(If you already claimed your email account, and were prompted to set up a 6-digit PIN, use that PIN instead of your Temporary PIN.)
Setting Up Murphy Without A Temporary PIN:
Start by claiming your email account (see above). Generally, toward the end of the process you will also be prompted to set up a PIN and two security questions.
These are your Murphy PIN and security questions.
Problems With Your Murphy PIN?
Email the the IRT Tech Desk. Ask them to reset your Murphy PIN.
The Tech Desk will give you a new PIN and e-mail it to your St. Thomas email account.
(So be sure to have your St. Thomas email account set up!)
Then you can log into Murphy and change your PIN to something easier to remember.
