Upon arrival at UCT, staff and students are provisioned with an email account.

UCT staff, postdoctoral fellows and those third parties who are entitled to an email account have a preferredname.surname@uct.ac.za email address. Undergraduate, masters and doctoral students have a studentnumber@myuct.ac.za email address.

UCT retirees may choose to keep their UCT mailbox for life, while UCT graduates are automatically provisioned with a name.surname@alumni.uct.ac.za email address.

UCT’s mail servers are hosted on the cloud-based email system, Office 365, but all end-user administration and support is still managed by ICTS.
