Your Student Email Account

You automatically receive an Anglia Ruskin student email account when you become a registered student at our University; this includes students at partner organisations as well as on our campuses in Cambridge, Chelmsford, London and Peterborough.

Your account helps to keep you in touch with other students and academics, as well as news and information from our University.

All important University news and information will be sent to your student email account. You must check it regularly for news and information related to your studies.

We use a cloud-based service called Office 365 to provide our students with all the features that you would expect from a student email service plus a number of additional benefits:

  • 25GB of email storage and a large attachment limit (25MB)
  • your email on the go from a variety of tablets, smart phones and other mobile devices
  • access to the latest versions of Microsoft Office tools from your desktop
  • a full calendar and meeting request service
  • customise the look of your mail box
  • access to the University global address list
