Your student email provides a great way to keep updated on all EU related news and events. It also allows you to register for many products and services as a student and receive major discounts. Despite the obvious benefits of a student email account, sometimes checking multiple email accounts can be stressful. Luckily, you can easily avoid this by forwarding your student email to an account of your choice. Once it is setup, all email sent to your student email account with then be sent to another email account. Here’s how to do this:

Step 1: Log into your student email account.

To log into your student email account go to this address:

It should look like this:

Use the beginning of your email address as the username and your student number as your password. The beginning of your email is always your first initial followed by a period and then your last name. Note: For common last names a number may be added after your last name. Make sure you make a note of the number when your student email is assigned to you.


Username: j.smith5

Password: 1234567

Step 2: Open the email “Settings” page.

Once you have logged in, find and click the icon in the top right corner that is shaped like a cog. Clicking it will reveal a drop down menu. Click “Settings” to open the “Settings” page.

Step 3: Choose the “Forwarding and POP/IMAP” tab.

Once the “Settings” page opens, click the “Forwarding and POP/IMAP” tab.

Step 4: Enter a forwarding email address.

In the “Forwarding” section of the “Forwarding and POP/IMAP” tab, click the “Add a forwarding address” button.

This will open a pop-up. Enter an email address that you have access to where you would like all of the email from your student account to go.

Click “Next” when you have entered the forwarding address. You will then be asked to confirm the forward. To confirm, click “Proceed”.

Step 5: Accept the forwarded address.

After clicking “Proceed” you will receive a notice indicating that a confirmation email has been sent to the forwarding address.

Click “ok”. Do not close this page or log-out of your student email.

Now, in another browser window, check the email of the forwarding address. In that inbox you will have an email from “Gmail Team” with a subject similar to “(#########) Gmail Forwarding Confirmation”. Open the email.

Once you open the email you will see a long link and a message indicating that your student email would like to forward messages to your forwarding address. To confirm click the confirmation link.

Clicking the link will open the browser to a “Confirmation Success!” page.

Step 6: Enable the confirmed address.

Your student email should still be open to the “Settings” page with the “Forwarding and POP/IMAP” tab selected. If not, you will need to repeat steps 1-3.

If you have kept the page open, refresh the page by pressing the refresh button in your browser or by pressing the “F5” key on your keyboard.

Now you should see multiple options in the “Forwarding” section. Choose the option to forward a copy to the confirmed address.

Once you log-out, the process is complete. All of your student email will now be forwarded to the chosen address.
