If you forward your UTas email to an external email provider, there's a chance you will not receive important email from UTas.
This issue particularly affects email services provided by Microsoft (including hotmail, outlook.com, msn.com and live.com email addresses) and Apple (including mac.com, me.com and iCloud.com email addresses). These and many other email providers use a blacklisting service to block sites that are considered senders of spam, and unfortunately at times this can include UTas due to the volume of email we send.
Please reconsider carefully if you use email forwarding. It can take weeks for these services to lift any blacklisting they apply to UTas, and during this period you will not receive email that could be important in relation to your studies and your assessment.
Important ReminderIn order to use the computer labs after hours (i.e. between 6:00pm and 7:30am on weekdays, and anytime on the weekend), it is a requirement that each individual using the labs holds:
Security staff have been asked to escort non-compliant students from the building.Should you wish to obtain an After Hours Access Card (prox-card), please see the Help Desk.
