Mailbox and other services on the Google for Education platform for all the users who are doing a PhD at UniTrento.
The email messaging service provided by the University of Trento for official communication between doctoral candidates and university consists in a personal and free email address distributed via Google Educational platform.
To access your email log in with your username and network password. Official university communications to staff and students are sent to University email accounts.
For the entire career at UniTrento doctoral candidates will have an email address in the form of @unitn.it. The storage space of the mailbox is unlimited.
Email address deactivation
Once the candidate has got the doctoral degree, the email address becomes
- name.surname [at] alumni.unitn.it
with the alias
- name.surname [at] ex-staff.unitn.it
After earning the degree, the email address @unitn.it will be active for 180 days. In case the PhD enters into a contract or starts collaborating with UniTrento, the “ex-staff email address” will be not valid anymore, and the user will be given the email address in the form @unitn.it again.
Also doctoral candidates are provided with all the Google Apps available on the Google for Education platform.
You can easily access the Google Applications by using the Google Apps widget available on MyUnitn.
Please have a look at the FAQs for further instructions and suggestions.
We suggest you to use Chrome in order to take full advantage of the Google Apps Service. As regards the email messaging service, Google is compatible with the Internet standard protocols POP and IMAP, though features are reduced in this case.
NB: after 180 days from the end of the career you will lose access to Google Drive and to the apps provided only for active users.
