Faculty & Staff:

UVa Exchange Service
The UVa Centralized Exchange Service (accessible through Outlook or Outlook Web Access from anywhere) integrates UVa’s centralized calendar with email, mobile devices, and SharePoint.
Request UVa Exchange Account
UVa Central Mail Service (CMS)
The Central Mail Service (accessible through an email program on your computer or CMS WebMail from anywhere), provides basic email without a calendar.
Request UVa Central Mail Account

While ITS recommends that faculty and staff choose between Exchange and the Central Mail Service, you may opt to have accounts on both. But then you will have to read email in 2 places.

The UVa Health System also provides Exchange email services to employees; the systems managed by Health System Technology Services (HSTS) and ITS do not share servers — they are totally different systems and there is no sharing of calendars or mailboxes.

UVa Exchange Service is not offered to alumni, and is available to students only in special situations. CMS accounts are not available for students or alumni. UVa Exchange Service requires an Eservices Exchange account.

UVa Gmail accounts are primarily offered to UVa students and alumni. However, UVa Gmail accounts are also available to faculty and staff who provide technical support to students.

(Step 2 of 2) Manage Your UVa Email Address(es)

Once you have your new email account, you can use the UVa Email Address Management System (AMS) to manage your UVa email address:
