Western's Central E-mail Service FAQ
Who is eligible for a Western e-mail account?
Every active student at Western is entitled to a Western e-mail account (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org). Current staff and faculty also recieve a @uwo.ca e-mail account and will use this account in any official communications with students.
When do I get this account?
An e-mail account is created when:
- an individual applies through the Ontario Universities' Application Centre (OUAC) to attend Western;
- a new student who did not apply through OUAC is set up in the Student Administration system;
- an individual returns to Western to study after a length of time;
- an individual is hired by Western.
How long do I have this e-mail account?
This e-mail account is provided to you for an indefinite period. Upon graduation, you will retain your @uwo.ca email address with no action required by you. If you graduate and return to Western, you will be given the same account.
How is the @uwo.ca e-mail account used at Western?
