When you register at UP, you receive a free Gmail email address where you will receive all email communication from the university.

  • It is important to read these emails daily, because your lecturers might want to remind you of assignments that are due, or notify you of changed exam dates, etc.
  •  It is recommended that you setup email forwarding to automatically copy mails to your private email account.
