- If you haven’t taken the Technology Tutorial, do so as soon as possible.

An excerpt from the “Electronic Communication Policy”:
“Any student, faculty or staff member who has been provided a University of Connecticut email account will also be issued a Personal Name alias. This will be the official address to which the University will send email communications, and the address that will be listed in the UConn Phone Book (http://phonebook.uconn.edu) and other University publications.
“While the easiest way to receive electronic University communication is by using the University’s email service directly, an individual may choose to have their University email redirected to another email address at his or her own risk. The University will not be responsible for the handling of email by outside vendors or by departmental servers. Having email redirected does not absolve a community member from the responsibilities associated with official communications sent to his or her University email address.
All faculty, staff and students are expected to check their University email on a frequent and consistent basis in order to ensure that they are staying current with all official communications.”
