myMail - your official UFV student email

As a UFV student, you have an official UFV student email through Exchange Online. All communication from UFV will be sent to this email and not to your personal email. It is expected that you use this email to communicate with UFV such as when emailing staff or your professors and check your inbox regularly

Make sure that you log into myUFV first as this will push your student information to myMail so that you can log in with the same info as myUFV:

Username: Use your student ID as your username.
Password: your myUFV password

The format of your UFV student email is Firstname.Lastname@student.ufv.ca (example: Mary.Smith@student.ufv.ca). Common names may have numbers added to the email address (Example: Mary.Smith1@student.ufv.ca). You can check what your email is in your myUFV account as well.

Can I attend my classes on my phone?

Technically yes, however, for the best experience and to make the most out of your studies, a laptop or desktop computer is highly recommended.

UFV is awesome! It provides small classrooms for better student and prof interaction. You can get involved in clubs and associations. And if you have any problems, there are always helpful staff members who will support you.
