Wi-Fi by eduroam
Students can access their email by logging into their myUFV account using their student ID number and password.
Many email clients available as internet downloads can access the student email system using POP and IMAP account type settings.
You need to log in to your second email account and use the options menu to configure its advanced settings.
Be aware of possible negative effects of auto-forwarding
The auto-forwarding target account may fail to receive or accept your UFV email for various reasons (e.g., attachments are too large, it marks it as SPAM, or it just is unavailable).
If you chose to leave a copy of the mail on the UFV server, we suggest you regularly delete old messages so your storage limit is not exceeded resulting in your incoming UFV email being rejected.
Changing your student status will not affect your UFV student email account. You will retain access to your UFV student email after you graduate or take time off from your studies.

You may access and manage UFV network folders and drives remotely by logging in to:
myUFV is a portal where you can access UFV student web services such as:
Username: Use your student ID as your username.
Password: Go to the login assistant and follow setup.
myUFV will suspend your account if it detects too many attempts to log in with the wrong password. When this happens, you are locked out for 30 minutes.
If after 30 minutes you are still unable to log in, please contact the IT Service Desk.
Your myUFV password is the same for computer login and network files access.
If you do not have a personal email address registered or do not remember which address is on file, contact the Office of the Registrar.
Log into a Blackboard Learn course at myClass using your student/employee ID number and myUFV password. If you are on a UFV campus, make sure you use the eduroam network to connect through wireless to a Blackboard Learn online course.
If you are having difficulties using Blackboard Learn, it may be due to the web browser you are using. We recommend using Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome to navigate Blackboard Learn.
For general online course information, please go to the UFV myClass info page.
The Knowledgebase allows you to search the IT Service Desk for self-help with common UFV computer-related problems and questions.
No login is required to access the knowledgebase.
