Automatic forwarding

Emails sent to the UvA email address are automatically forwarded to the private email address you entered in Studielink. We recommend you stop forwarding email automatically because it doesn't always work as it should.

Official communication channel

The UvA sends all information about your study programme via email. Check your UvA mailbox or your private email address regularly so you don't miss anything.

If you use a private email address such as Hotmail, Live Mail, MSN Mail or Gmail, emails sent to you by the UvA may sometimes fail to arrive. Check your spam folder regularly and add the UvA to your trusted senders list.

Using email after terminating your enrolment

When you deregister as a student, you can use your UvA email address as long as your UvAnetID is still valid. After that, your UvA email account will be closed.

Sending limit

You can send emails to a maximum of 250 addresses per hour. This can be either in one message with 250 addresses in the To/Cc/Bcc fields, or more messages with fewer recipients. A distribution list or group from the shared address book counts as one recipient. If you exceed this limit, you will not be able to email to addresses outside the UvA for 24 hours. After that period, you can resend saved messages, bearing in mind the sending limit.
