Professors, researchers and members of staff email
The centralized email messaging service supply its users with some communication tools, such as:
- A personal email address
- Shared mailboxes (on request)
- Address Book (Contacts)
The service for email communication the University of Trento makes available consists in a personal and free email address, provided by the Google Educational Platform.
All professors, researchers, staff members etc. are entitled to a UniTrento email account. Official university communications are sent to University email addresses according to the AUP of GARR and to university regulations.
For the entire career at UniTrento (except for specific cases) the email address will be in the form of name.surname [at] unitn.it (or similar). The storage space of the mailbox is unlimited.
UniTrento account deletion
Following the user’s resignation, the university email account is still active, but the email address becomes
- name.surname [at] ex-staff.unitn.it
Once the working relationship is over, the email address @unitn.it will still be active for 180 days. On the contrary, if the same user enters into a new contract 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.

UniTrento supply all its professors, researchers and members of staff with all the Google Applications available on the Google for Education platform.
