Electronic Mailing Lists

Electronic mailing lists are used to distribute email to a group of subscribers (e.g., students in a class, colleagues in a department, or members of campus organizations). UMass Amherst uses Mailman, a Web-based tool administered by UMass Amherst IT, to manage campus email lists.

Starting with summer 2020 classes, class email lists are powered by Google Groups. The process for requesting a new class email list through SPIRE will not change. Log in with your NetID and password at to manage your class lists.
