Why your student email is important
As a brand new ECU student you get your own email address. It’s the only email address we’ll use to contact you. So whatever you do, don’t forget to check it most days.
We’ll send you plenty of important messages, and some of them you really don’t want to miss! That includes information about your enrolment, fees, exams, semester results and important dates.
And, thinking positively about your future, we also use that email address to give you all the info you need for your graduation ceremony!
Your lecturer or tutor will also use this account to contact you.
