Get Started with Email at University of Alaska


All students, faculty, and staff receive a university provided email account. This account is used by the university to provide important information to students and is used by faculty and staff to conduct university business. In addition to email, additional companion services are available including calendar and cloud document storage services.

The University of Alaska's primary email, and calendaring service is provided by G Suite for Education. UAA faculty, and staff that require the use of a Health Insurance Portability and Accountability (HIPAA) compliant email account should submit a request to the IT Services Technical Support Center.


Note for Students
Please be aware that your university provided email account is used for important university communications including class information from instructors, student account information, dates, deadlines and communications from student government.


Note for Employees
Please be aware that employees (i.e. staff, faculty, and adjunct faculty) are required to conduct university business from university provided email accounts.
