Email, calendar, documents and storage

When you become a student at the University of Gothenburg, a student account and an e-mail address are created that you use during your studies. The university can contact you through this address. With your student account, you have access to webmail and other online tools for, among other things, file storage, word processing and presentations.

The university can also contact you via e-mail addresses you set in the learning management system Canvas, Ladok and on antagning.se. Therefore, it is important that you set a current e-mail address in all systems. You can use the email address you received as a student in all systems. All your e-mail will then end up in that inbox.


Microsoft Outlook is used for webmail.

Tools for file storage, word processing, presentations, and more

You can use tools within the Microsoft 365 cloud service to create, share and collaborate on documents, presentations, spreadsheets, and more. You use the email address you received as a student to log in.

Use your favorite e-mail and calendar app

Have e-mail from your student account easily accessible by adding the e-mail address you received as a student to your favorite e-mail app. For example, it could be the e-mail app on your phone or if you use an app installed on your computer.

Most apps make it very easy to add e-mail addresses. It may be slightly different for different apps. Below is roughly how it works:

  1. Look for the setting to add new account in, for example, the app's settings.
  2. Choose Microsoft Exchange or Office 365.
  3. Use the e-mail address and password you received as a student.
