Email is an official means of communication at the UvA. Regularly check your UvA mailbox or the email address you provided in Studielink for communication purposes; otherwise you might miss out on important information about your degree programme. Do you use Hotmail, Live Mail or MSN Mail? Then there is a chance that e-mails sent by the UvA will end up in the 'junk e-mail' folder. Check this folder regularly and mark the UvA as trusted sender.
As of July 2020, all UvA students will be provided with a UvA mailbox on the Microsoft 365 platform. From then on it is no longer possible to apply for a UvA mailbox in Google Suite for Education.
