Forward your student emails to a personal account

If you have a personal email account that you check regularly, you can redirect your VU student email so it's automatically sent to your existing email address.

To forward your student emails onto your personal email account*, follow these steps:

  1. Log into your student email account

  5. Type in the address for email to be forwarded to and select whether to keep a copy of forwarded emails in your Office 365 email.

Important emails from the University that are normally sent to your student email address, will now be sent to your preferred personal email address.
