Email at UCT

Upon arrival at UCT, staff and students are provisioned with an email account.

UCT staff, postdoctoral fellows and those third parties who are entitled to an email account have a preferredname.surname@uct.ac.za email address. Undergraduate, masters and doctoral students have a studentnumber@myuct.ac.za email address.

UCT retirees may choose to keep their UCT mailbox for life, while UCT graduates are automatically provisioned with a name.surname@alumni.uct.ac.za email address.

UCT’s mail servers are hosted on the cloud-based email system, Office 365, but all end-user administration and support is still managed by ICTS.
