myUVU Gmail Common Questions and Answers

Who will be affected by this email change?

  • All students will receive a new myUVU Gmail account. Faculty and staff will remain on the Outlook system as their official UVU email account, however they will also have a myUVU Gmail account (just as they all have a UVLink Mail email account currently) and can auto-forward their email to their Outlook account as desired.

When will this email change take place?

  • The new myUVU Gmail system will be made available to all portal users in December as a Beta system. All incoming UVLink Mail at that time will start to arrive in both the UVLink Mail system and myUVU Gmail system.  UVlink will still be the official portal for UVU until March 2016.  On March 18th, 2016, the new myUVU portal will go "live" and become the official portal and myUVU Gmail will become the official student email system. Both systems will be available for use until September 30, 2016. At that time, the UVLink Mail system will be shutdown for regular use and all incoming email to that system will be auto-forwarded to the new myUVU Gmail system until December 23, 2016.

Will my "student" email address change?

  • Yes. Your new UVU student email will be UVID@my.uvu.edu. 

*Aliasing may be available in the future.

Will I still be able to access my UVLink email that's there?

  • UVLink will be available until September 30, 2016. Starting in December 2015 incoming UVLink email will be routed to both UVLink and to your new myUVU Gmail account.  You can access your email in either system.
