Correspondence between the university and the students and doctoral candidates is either post or by electronic means (Internet and e-mail). Consequently, new students and doctoral students and new entrants are given necessary rights of access and an e-mail account on first admission.
The e-mail address firstname.lastname @ students.unibe.ch serves as an official communications channel within the university. Important information from the Admissions Office, administration and the deans' offices and institutions will only be sent to this e-mail address and not to private e-mail addresses or e-mail addresses of the institutes.
Your e-mail-address does not change automatically due to a change of name. Ask the helpdesk of the IT Services to do so.
Please consult your university student email account regularly and check your e-mails in particular so you do not miss the calls for online semester re-registration. You can forward the university e-mails to another e-mail address. However, there is a risk that the official e-mails from the University of Bern are filtered out as spam. Please note that our e-mails are regarded as delivered when they have arrived in your student e-mail address.
