Student Email

Students are assigned with a university email account upon UIC NetID Activation. Depending on when you activated your NetID, your email account may be assigned to UIC Gmail or Microsoft Exchange, also known as Office 365.  Any emails sent to your UIC email address will be sent to your UIC email account.

  • Students that activated their NetID BEFORE July 13, 2022, will have their email assigned to UIC Gmail, with the exception of College of Dentistry and UIC Law students.
  • Students that activated their NetID ON OR AFTER July 13, 2022, will have their email assigned to Microsoft Exchange. Two-Factor Authentication is required.

  • Effective Saturday, May 29, 2021, email routing to uic.edu will be updated to improve overall UIC email delivery security. As a result of this change, UIC email users may see more email routed to Junk Email or Spam folders. 
  • We suggest that you periodically check your Junk Email/Spam folder in case any messages are incorrectly marked as spam, and report any phishing attempts that do make it to your inbox to security@uic.edu. Learn more about new spam filters.
