Warwick student email account
Your Warwick email address is the only email address that the University will use to contact you during your period of study at Warwick. If you will be unable to check your University email account regularly, you should set up a forwarding rule so that all email received by your University account is forwarded to an account you will be checking. If you chose to forward email to another address you should ensure spam filters will not prevent email from getting through. If you need help to do this, please contact the IT Services Helpdesk on firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note: Students are expected to check their Warwick email account regularly as this is the primary means for the University central administration to relay important information you. We will use this to notify you of such things as the opening/closing of re-enrolment, important events, information relating to fees and bursaries etc. We cannot accept liability for information you have not received because you have not checked your account.
