Using Student Email

Student email addresses are automatically generated and can not be changed by individuals.

If you have a legitimate reason for wanting this changed e.g the combination of letters is an offensive word in ANY language etc. you can speak to Campus Central and it is to their discretion as to whether or not this change occurs.

If you are wanting your email address to be changed to first.lastname@mymail.unisa.edu.au, this depends on the study you are undertaking at UniSA.

One of the most common reasons for this is because Microsoft email server now keep track of the emails you read and the ones you don't. As new email comes in, it takes messages you're most likely to ignore and puts them into the "Clutter" folder.

Both email addresses will be delivered to the same mailbox and any emails they send will show from [firstname].[lastname]@mymail.unisa.edu.au.
