University email

Since September 2013 all undergraduate and postgraduate taught students have their email hosted in the cloud on Microsoft’s Office 365 platform. This offers a much improved student email experience with 50GB mailbox space, 25GB cloud storage and the potential for online collaboration and communication tools in the future.

All staff, and most postgraduate research students, have their email stored within the University on Microsoft Exchange 2010. Being closely integrated with other University systems this option offers the best experience for staff and PGR students.

Although both systems look and feel similar some of the set up instructions do differ so it’s important you understand which you are using.

Your email address

Your email account will have a standard email address in the format mylogin@essex.ac.uk.
