Importance of your UWA email account

Why do I need to have a University student email account?

As a UWA student you will automatically be assigned a student email account. You should activate this as soon as you enrol. Remember:

  • Your UWA student email account is the University's official means of communicating with you. 
  • You must check your UWA student email regularly to ensure you don't miss out on any important information such as correspondence and reminders about enrolment, fees, classes, examination, graduations. Library notices and other information will be sent regularly to your student email account.  
  • University 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.

Your student email account allows us to verify your identify (unlike third party email accounts). When you enrol you sign a 'student declaration' in which you acknowledge that you will check your UWA student email, as well as agreeing to the other policies and procedures at the University. 

Contact the UWA Library or Email Us for more information and assistance with your UWA student email account.
