New student email system and portal

August 30, 2012

Over the August Bank Holiday weekend IT staff were busy migrating all student email accounts to Microsoft in the Cloud. This brings a number of changes and benefits for students:

IT Services has now completed the upgrade of student email service.

You now get a huge increase in storage (25GB mailbox), a new improved web client and much better compatibility with Apple Macs and mobile devices. Your email address has also changed to firstname.lastname@student.uwl.ac.uk. Please start notifying your contacts of your new email address now. You will also need to update or re-subscribe to mailing lists. Your old email addresses firstname.lastname@ex.uwl.ac.uk and firstname.lastname@ex.tvu.ac.uk will stop working on Friday 14th December 2012.

 

And linked to this move, the new student portal, based on Microsoft Office 365, also became live on Tuesday morning:

Your new student portal is based on Microsoft Office 365 in the Cloud.

It is your gateway to all the information you need whilst studying at the University. It also has some great new collaboration features. Do have fun learning and using your new portal. Please let us know what you think by using the feedback link at the top of your portal. If you get stuck and need some help, please call the IT Service Desk 24h a day 365 days a year.

 

University students and staff can log onto the portal at http://portal.uwl.ac.uk
