Student Email Policy


E-mail is an official means of communication for students at the CU Denver. All official university e-mail will be sent to each student’s assigned a CU Denver e-mail address.

CU Denver will only use CU Denver student e-mail accounts if it elects to send e-mail communications to students. CU Denver e-mail accounts are available through IT Services. Students are responsible for reading e-mails received from CU Denver.

The purpose of this requirement is to:

  1. Ensure students receive information timely
  2. Eliminate identity concerns related to student communications received by CU Denver via e-mail. CU Denver is not responsible for mail forwarded from CU Denver student e-mail accounts

Effects of new policy

The university will only use your CU Denver-assigned e-mail account for e-mail communications. Faculty and administration will use your official CU Denver-assigned addresses when corresponding with you via e-mail. Examples of important CU Denver communications that you may receive through your official e-mail address include:

  • Invitations to register
  • Responses to your inquiries about registration, admissions, records and financial aid
  • Information and authorization/verification requests for College Opportunity Fund, legal presence issues
  • Messages from faculty regarding course work
  • Notices of scholarship, educational and financial aid opportunities and deadlines

It is expected that official e-mail will be read by students in a timely fashion.

E-mail address format

UC Denver-assigned student e-mail addresses have the following format:

  • firstname.lastname@email.ucdenver.edu

Note: Students must follow the activation procedure below to activate their account and obtain their exact address.
