Messages from your instructors, notices from the university, and class cancelations will be communicated through your KU email. By default, your email will be your OnlineID@ku.edu, (e.g.: email@example.com). Create a more unique email address at myidentity.ku.edu, for example, "Ima.jayhawk @ku.edu". Because this is your official KU email address, instructors may only respond to your KU email as it verifies who you are.
Check email, calendar, and more at mail.ku.edu or using your mobile device. Search self-help guides at the Knowledge Base (knowledgebase.ku.edu) for instructions on how to configure your device to access your email and calendar.
