Staff email

Staff can access their VU email account at any time, on or off campus, by logging into University webmail.

Login to webmail

For assistance and support, please contact the IT Service Desk on +61 3 9919 2777 or email at servicedesk@vu.edu.au.

Some notes about the email system:

  • Messages older than 60 Days will be deleted from the Inbox only. This task occurs every Saturday morning.
  • Messages older than 45 days will have the attachment and graphics 'shortcutted' into the central archive. This rule applies to all folders.

You can also configure your mobile devices to be able to check email when off campus. Refer to the ITS support page on setting up your mobile for mail.

Yammer

Yammer is a closed-network social media site available to all VU staff. Like Facebook, staff have a 'wall' on which they post messages and receive updates from other members and groups to which they subscribe.

To get your Yammer account, go to http://yammer.com and sign up using your VU email address (firstname.lastname@vu.edu.au).

Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube & Instagram

VU maintains a number of 'official' channels on social media services. A selection of the most popular and active are:

The Conversation

The Conversation is a website that publishes news, commentary and analysis from university and research sectors. The site is accessed by hundreds of thousands of visitors every month from around the globe.
