You acquire a UTS Student ID number when you enrol at UTS, which is linked to a UTS Webmail account and other important UTS systems like UTS Canvas. Microsoft Office 365 is used by your UTS email account.
From the time you enrol until the day you receive your University of Technology Sydney diploma, this account will be yours. It gives you quick access to a number of UTS systems that will help you with your study.
How to log into UTS Webmail
- Access Microsoft’s login page (opens the Microsoft login website).
- Sign in using firstname.lastname@example.org as your username, for instance, email@example.com.
- Enter your IT password.
- Click or tap to select Sign in.
How to activate your UTS Webmail
After you enrol, your UTS Student Account is created. The next step is activating your account.
In order to activate your account, you must:
- Visit the webpage for UTS:My Account.
- Your Student Identification (Student ID) number must be entered.
- Enter the required personal details
- Enter your birthdate using the example’s dd/mm/yy format (any other date format will result in an error)
- By activating your account, you agree to abide by all UTS policies and rules, including those relevant to the Acceptable Use Policy. Please read and understand the appropriate UTS Webmail policies and guidelines before checking the four boxes. Student accounts may be locked, disciplinary action taken, legal action taken, or expulsion may result from violations of the rules and regulations.
- Create three (3) Security Questions; you must remember the answers to these since they will be required to confirm your identity in the future.
- Create a password: Your password must contain at least one of each and be between 8 and 16 characters long. It can only contain letters, numbers, and symbols. There are no spaces permitted. Please do not use your UTS ID. Use a different password now.
- You will see a confirmation that your account has been activated and your UTS email address if you have configured your password properly.
Forgot your password?
The one secret you should never reveal is your password. Sharing or divulging your password is against UTS policies and procedures. Sharing presents a number of potential security problems.
To reset your password:
- Go to Password Reset (opens the password reset facility).
- Enter your Student Identification (Student ID) number.
- Enter the required personal details.
- Use the example’s format to enter your birthdate: dd/mm/yyyy (any other date format will result in an error).
- Respond to the security question (these are questions that you originally set up).
- Enter in a new password.
