Communicating with you

  • Getting started

    Before your time at the university begins, we will use your personal email address (as listed on your application for admission) to communicate with you. Details about course registration, Graduate Student Orientation, and tuition and fees will be emailed to you, usually one to two months before the beginning of the academic term.

    As your start date approaches, it is important to keep in contact with your graduate program director, graduate program assistant, research supervisor or faculty advisor. They can answer any specific questions you may have about your upcoming studies and help you prepare for a successful graduate student experience.

  • University email accounts

    @ontariotechu.net email addresses (all students)

    All students receive an @ontariotechu.net email address. Once you are enrolled at the university, this is the only email address we will use to communicate with you. It's important to check your @ontariotechu.net email account regularly so you have the latest information about registration, finances, academics, and events and programs. Learn about setting up your account.

    @uoit.ca email addresses (for employees of the university)

    Teaching Assistants (TAs) and Research Assistants (RAs) employed by the university will have an @uoit.ca email account. This will be used for employment-related purposes only. Additional details, as well as access instructions, will be sent to TAs and RAs once the accounts have been activated.

  • Newsletters

    Each month, two different newsletters will be sent to your @ontariotechu.net account:

    • The Keynote - newsletter from SGPS containing information on upcoming workshops, scholarship competitions, events, important academic dates/deadlines and updates from the Graduate Student Council. Sent at the middle of the month.
    • Ridgebacks Report - our newsletter for all university students. Sent the first week of every month.
  • MyCampus
    Whether you are registering for classes, checking your account balance, need to download a form or want to see the latest announcements, our student portal MyCampus is your central resource.
