Request & Manage Your UVa Email Account
University faculty, staff, students, and alumni may have an ITS-supported email account as described below.
After requesting or activating your account in Step 1, continue to Step 2 to use the UVa Email Address Management System to create and manage your email aliases, change where you read your University email, etc.
(Step 1 of 2) Activate/Request a UVa Email Account

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.
