Your campus key is your own unique identifier of who you are within Jefferson. Everyone with the University/Hospital has a campus key. You will use your campus key to sign in to email and other important Jefferson applications. 

Please contact the Solutions Center for campus key and password issues. The contact number for the Solution Center is 215-955-7975.

You are free to configure a forward of your mail from your Jefferson student account to your personal email account. The below link provides instructions to enable forwarding:

Email Forwarding

Your default email address is First.Last@students.jefferson.edu. For example, if your name is Jane Doe your email address will be Jane.Doe@students.jefferson.edu. Students will also be given an alias of "campuskey"@students.jefferson.edu in addition to your default email address.

If there are two people who have the same name, the naming convention adds a number at the end of your last name. For example, if there are two Jane Doe's at Jefferson, the email addresses will be:

  • Jane.Doe@students.jefferson.edu
  • Jane.Doe2@students.jefferson.edu

The OneDrive space limit is 1TB.
