Emails from UCD

The University uses email as an official means of communication with students and provides a UCD Connect email to each student for this purpose.

What you need to know
In addition to the UCD Connect email, communications will also be sent to the personal email account for all students who have provided a non-UCD Connect account.

What you need to do
Go to the ‘My Profile’ tab in SISWeb and check that your personal details are up to date. If you don’t want UCD to use your personal email address, you can tell us using the ‘My Profile’ tab.

Please note
Your UCD Connect email address remains the main point of contact for all communications.
