Keep an eye on your email inbox
We will send you, by email, your College email address and password. Please activate your account right away; you should visit the platform, the Camel Experience Here, you will learn about the College, the resources available to you, and you will be able to access the "Checklist” which contains important forms such as your housing form and health documents. After your new Connecticut College account is activated, most information we send to you will be to your Connecticut College email address, so please log in at least once a week. (You can read and send email by going to CamelWeb and clicking the email icon at the top of the page.) If you do not get your College email address, contact the IT Service Desk at 860-439-4357.
