How can I check my UIC email?

UIC students, faculty and staff have more than one email service to choose from. Technology Solutions supports UIC Gmail and UIC Exchange.

UIC students are defaulted to have UIC Gmail accounts created for them upon NetID activation.
UIC faculty and staff are defaulted to have UIC Exchange accounts created for them upon NetID claim (via UI New Hire). 

Email Clients

Sometimes, if you are not classified as having either a student or faculty/full-time staff affiliation, you might not have a UIC email account automatically created upon NetID activation (as is often the case with external affiliates). If you do not yet have a UIC email account created, you may log into the UIC Account Portal to create your UIC email account. Please note that, if you are an external affiliate whose mail is currently forwarded from your UIC email address to a personal email address, your UIC email forwarding will be automatically routed to your new UIC email account. This will be irreversible.
If you are having trouble logging into your email account, please ensure that you already have a UIC email account created by going to the UIC Account Portal > Accounts. You should have either "Google Apps@UIC" or "Microsoft Exchange O365" listed under "Your accounts." If neither of these options are listed, please scroll to the bottom, select the available email account, and then click "Create account."
If you've forgotten your UIC NetID password, please visit UIC NetID Center. You may refer to this document for further instruction.
If you are a UIC faculty/staff member who would prefer to use UIC Gmail rather than UIC Exchange, please send an email to
