The University of Oviedo offers a simple on-line guide for students to quickly learn how to carry out certain procedures, what requirements must be completed for each and where to go to take care of it. This initiative aims to simplify things and pave the way for students through the bureaucratic paperwork, making the whole process much more efficient.
The University of Oviedo offers a service of e-mail to its staff, students and, in general, to any person who currently has a labor or academic relation with the institution. All the users are given an e-mail account which is valid for a limited time. In the case of students, this validity is not previously defined, while e-mail accounts of the staff and the rest of the userbase will only be valid as long as they are contractually related to the University.
The corporative e-mail service of the University of Oviedo is built upon two structures:
- A structure owned by the University that offers its users a storage of 1 GB. This infrastructure is used to manage the e-mail account of the institutional positions and the staff that so requests it.
- An infrastructure provided by a service provided that makes available for the userbase a storage space of 25 GB. This infrastructure is used to provide e-mail accounts for the students and the users that do not belong to the staff of the University. The provider is Microsoft, contracted as a service provider. Thanks to this contract, the users also have access to additional services, such as online document management (Sharepoint On-Line) or access to a suite of online communication (Lync On-Line). Since this contract contemplates additional services, apart from a larger storage for the user, the staff of the University of Oviedo may choose to migrate their e-mail accounts to this infrastructure.
Any member of the university community (Students, Teachers and Service Staff) and any person related to the institution.

Ways to apply
Application form for e-mail accounts:
Places to submit
Secretariat of the center in which the student is enrolled or administrative unit (Office of the Vice-Rector, Department, Service) to which the applicant is related.
The e-mail accounts are created in different ways:
- The accounts of the students are created during the process of enrollment. Thus, it is not necessary to make a explicitly apply for it.
- The accounts of the Staff are created when their contract with the Institution is formalized. As it is the case with the student accounts, it is not necessary to explicitly apply for one.
- The creation of the rest of the accounts requires a formal request with the corresponding application form for e-mail accounts.
E-mail accounts can be accessed in two ways:
All the users have a maximum quota of storage assigned. It is important to bear in mind that if this quota is reached, no e-mails will be received by the account until storage is freed. It is up to each user to keep enough free space in their account for it to properly receive e-mails.
- Using a web browser (application called WebMail): To access your e-mail account, click on the following link: https://www.outlook.com/uniovi.es
- Using an e-mail client (Microsoft Office Outlook, Thunderbird, Mac OS Mail, cell phone client, etc.). To do this, go to the section Configuration of a desktop client/mobile device
