Changing your Display Name

Your Display Name is a friendly name that is attached to your account and Mailbox. It is used as a nickname in email and is how you are first presented in the email address book.

We automatically generate your Display Name from your student/staff record. It is usually your firstname and lastname, unless you have specifically told us that you would like to be known as a different name.

There are instances where you may wish to have this changed.

Examples:

  • You wish to have your middle name removed
  • You have changed your name
  • You are an international student and would prefer to use an Anglicized first name

 

To change your display name:

Staff should contact IT Service Desk on 0191 2085999 with a request for this to be done.

NUMed students should contact their local administrators to have their student record amended appropriately, this will then feed through to our systems and your display name will be updated (this may take up to 2 days).

INTO Students should contact the INTO office to have their student record amended appropriately, this will then feed through to our systems and your display name will be updated (this may take up to 2 days).

All other students should log into the Student Self Service portal (S3P) at https://s3p.ncl.ac.uk/login/index.aspx and update the "known as" field in the personal details section. Your email display name will be automatically updated overnight.

You are reminded that display names should reflect your actual name and that display names can be seen by all other members of the University and anyone that you email.
