All students at the University of Victoria have the ability to create an email account. UVic email accounts contain the @uvic.ca domain and provide you with 1 GB of storage space. Email is used for university communications, including emails from instructors and important notices.

Create a UVic email account

When you sign up for a NetLink ID, you will also be issued a UVic email account. Your email address is your NetLinkID@uvic.ca. To activate your UVic email address, login to the student WebMail system.

Only current students can create a UVic email address. Student applicants are not eligible. Alumni can set up email forwarding from an @alumni.uvic.ca account to an email address of their choice. Visit the Alumni Association for more information.

Check your Email

UVic email accounts can be accessed online (on or off campus) using an Internet browser. They do not require any configuration or setup.
