Make a New Listserv
To create a listserv, you must first have an account. To set-up an account you must first be a recognized student organization. The recognition process is managed by Student Leadership Development. Once that recognition process is complete, an email with account activation instructions will be sent to the person listed as the contact for the organization to set-up the account. Follow the prompts provided by the email to complete the account activation process. The account will allow the organization to login to campus resources like listservs.
Once your account has been created:
- Go to lists.wm.edu.
- Sign in with your organization's account credentials in the top left-hand corner.
- Click on the Create List tab.
- Fill out the form. The listserv name cannot be the same as the WMuserid/email account for the recognized student organization.
- Click Submit Request.
- You will receive an email with the listserv terms. Agree to the terms by replying to the message.
Your list will be activated once W&M IT receives your email.
