myLife student email account

The University of South Africa (Unisa) in collaboration with Microsoft has created its own student email system (myLife) in recognition of the increasing need for, and reliance on, electronic communication.   This is a free service and you may keep this e-mail address for life, even after completing your studies with Unisa. You must be a registered 2009 Unisa student before you can claim your free e-mail account.  Claim your free e-mail by joining myUnisa.  You will receive your initial password during the join process. In future, this will be the ONLY means of communication between Unisa and its students and will be considered an official communication standard between students and college faculty and staff.  The use of the student email is a privilege, not a right, and the university maintains the right to limit access.   Email is subject to third-party disclosure through subpoena or other legal processes.
