We are pleased to announce that for the majority of our staff and postgraduate research students we have completed the migration to Gmail. For those who had inboxes or archives on our central servers (student, staff and ilrt servers), all your email is now in Gmail. You can log into Gmail either via the shortcut in your University start menu or the login button on:


Shared Mailboxes on the Staff server have also completed migrating across to Gmail and you can access these from within your personal account, details on how to do this can be found at: Shared mailboxes on other servers will continue through the week.


As previously announced, we are unable to migrate emails from departmental servers over the migration weekend. We have migrated the user accounts and users on these servers should now use Gmail for new emails. You can find an update on the email migration from these servers below:


  • Physics exchange server: In progress.
  • Chemistry, Geography, Geology, Maths, SSCM: Not yet begun.


Also, we are are unable to automatically migrate ‘local folders’. If you believe you have local folders, then log a ticket with the IT Service Desk or speak to your Zonal IT Teams.


Although project staff will be available over the holiday, the University is still closed and support will be limited until Wednesday, April 3rd. Self Service support and details of how to obtain further support can be found at


Any questions?
