Importance of your UWA email account
Why do I need to have a University student email account?
Your UWA student email account is the University's official means of communicating with you. University Policy specifies that:
- Emails will only be sent to your UWA student email account.
- University staff will only respond to emails that you send from your UWA student email account.
As a student enrolled at the University, you are provided with a free web-based student email account. You should activate it when you enrol and ensure you check it regularly. Your email account enables University staff to contact you about your enrolment, fees, classes, examinations and other information. Additionally, all library loan reminder notices (including overdue notices) are sent to your student email account. It also verifies your identification, unlike a personal email account which can't authenticate who you say you are.
You must check your UWA student email regularly to ensure you don't miss out on any important information. The University cannot take responsibility for any information you miss due to not using your UWA student email account. This is an important part of your student declaration that you agree to when you enrol as a UWA student.
