Step 2: Activate Your Email

Set up your University of Edinburgh email address .

You will receive a second email from Information Services (IS) at the University of Edinburgh.


Follow the link in the email and complete these steps:

1. Log in to MyEd using your EASE Student UUN and password you created in Step 1.

2. Follow the instructions given to activate your University of Edinburgh email account.

If anything is unclear, watch the Information Services Activating Your Email Account Video.


The email from IS also includes information such as your Office 365 login name (usually and your student email address. Make a note of these or keep this email for future reference. You will be able to access your student email address from MyEd or directly through Office 365.


Your University email account is the primary way members of staff will contact you during your studies – once you are studying with us, we will not use your personal email address to communicate with you. It is therefore vital that you frequently check your University email account.
