As of July 2020, all UvA students have a UvA mailbox on the Microsoft 365 platform at their disposal.
UvA email address
Each UvA student now has their own UvA email address on the Microsoft 365 platform. You can log on to Microsoft 365 and will always receive emails from the UvA at this UvA email address. As an additional service, the emails you receive in your UvA mailbox are also forwarded to the email address you submitted as your correspondence address in Studielink. If you are happy with this, no further action is required. If you want to disable this email forwarding, go to your account settings and select my details. This will allow you to separate study-related emails from your personal email.
Mailbox moving from G-Suite to Microsoft 365
Many students had a UvA email address already, as well as a mailbox in G-Suite. In July 2020 this mailbox was moved from G-Suite to Microsoft 365. Existing email addresses remained the same. All emails, calendars and contacts have been transferred to the new 50 GB mailbox in Microsoft 365.
How will the files be relocated?
G Suite will remain available as an archive until 31 December 2020. If you want to save files that are located in G Suite, you need to transfer them to Microsoft 365 yourself using this manual before 31 December 2020.
