At the UT all employees are provided with a mailbox under Outlook Exchange and an e-mail address which starts with your initials and surname and ends with @utwente.nl (e.g. email@example.com). This service is provided by LISA.
All students are provided with a Google Apps for Education account with an e-mail address ending with @student.utwente.nl (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org). Your student mail is used by your programme of study for study/work-related e-mails, so check this e-mail address frequently. The Google Apps @ UT is available at googleapps.utwente.nl.
Below you will find manuals which you can use to configure your various e-mail programs for your student e-mail.
