The University email system uses Google Mail. If you are unsure whether you are able to access Google Mail when you are out of the country for any period of time, please ensure you set up a forwarding system so you are still able to access email.

Students must email from their university address where possible. If you have to email from a private address, you must include a signature or provide your registration number or username to help staff identify you.

Your Personal Tutor, Academic Staff and the Support Staff will usually communicate with you by your university email account. It is your responsibility to check your University of Sheffield email account regularly, in and out of term time, for urgent and important messages. 

Please download and read the Student and Staff Communications Policy. Not reading your University emails regularly will not constitute an acceptable excuse for any failure to adhere to regulations or other requirements on your part.
