All students have a UCI email address based on your UCInetID (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org) Use this address for official communication with the University.
Incoming students will receive a UCI Google (Gmail) account. By default, your email will be delivered there. You may also choose to have your “@uci.edu” email delivered to a different address.
- Set your UCI Google password
- Change where your “@uci.edu” email is delivered
You may opt to send your UCI email to another e-mail account, including a personal account. However, OIT recommends you use the UCI Gmail account. If you choose to use a another account, it is best to configure that account to send mail citing your @uci.edu address in the “From:” line when communicating with your instructors, TAs, and for other University business.
