When you enrol you are automatically given access to NUmail, our student email service, which is hosted by Microsoft Office 365.
Official University correspondence will be sent to this account, so be sure to check your NUmail regularly.
Your email account, or mailbox, is a combination of your student number (a unique seven-digit number allocated to you by the University, preceded by the letter c) and the email system domain name (uon.edu.au) - email@example.com
You are also given an email alias, which is an email address that points to your mailbox, usually in the format Firstname.Lastname@uon.edu.au. This is often an easier way of giving people your email address.
Email addressed to you in either of the following formats will be delivered to your NUmail inbox:
Email sent from your NUmail account will be in the format:
- Firstname Lastname <firstname.lastname@example.org>
For more information view the Getting started with NUmail article in the IT Services Knowledge Base.
Your NUmail password is linked to your myHub password.
To change your NUmail password, simply change your myHub password in Online Services - My Computer Accounts.
This change will automatically flow through to NUmail, ensuring that your password is always the same across all University systems.
Protecting your NUmail from cyber threats is very important to us. You can find out more about how the University does this, plus what you can do to stay safe online, here.NUmail Access your NUmail account
