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 emails sent by the UvA might end up in the 'junk email' folder. Check this folder regularly and mark the UvA as trusted sender.
As of July 2020 each student will have their own UvA email address in Microsoft 365. You can log into Microsoft 365 with this e-mail address and will always receive e-mails from the UvA at this UvA e-mail address. Read more about the UvA mailbox in Microsoft 365 and how you can set up your e-mail on, for example, your phone.
You'll find more information about the UvA mailbox and tools like OneDrive and MS Teams under Studying Online in the A-Z list.
