The current owner of the e-mail account can send an email from the current student group e-mail to CUIT, making sure to copy your Student Affairs adviser.

Please make sure to copy your Student Affairs adviser and that your e-mail includes the e-mail alias to be reset, the e-mail alias, and the new owner(s) that you wish to take ownership of the account.

Requesting a New Student Organization Mailing List (Listserv)

If you have a general student organization e-mail alias, please submit a few possibilities that will not be confused with the general e-mail. A member of CUIT will respond seeking the approval from your adviser. If approval is granted, CUIT will e-mail the owner with the official mailing list alias and detailed instructions on how to operate the mailing list account.
