What is the email address for my UIC Gmail account?

Explains what the emails address is for a UIC Gmail account

Everyone at UIC has a UIC email address of the form: NetID@uic.edu

e.g. For Ada Byron, whose student NetID is abyron1, this is: abyron1@uic.edu.

This is an important email address, because all official UIC email will be sent to it. But it is just an email address; there isn't an email account to go with it. At some point or other, you will have to select an actual email account to receive and manage your NetID@uic.edu email.

Will your NetID@uic.edu email go to your UIC Gmail account?

  • Yes, probably, if this is your first Technology Solutions account.
  • Yes, certainly, if you have changed the forwarding of your NetID@uic.edu email address to your UIC Gmail account.
  • Otherwise, no. And this might be how you want it. You can use the other features of UIC Gmail without having your NetID@uic.edu email being sent there.
  • Not sure which applies to you? Want to change where your NetID@uic.edu email goes? Use Change NetID@uic.edu email forwarding address to check and/or to change the forwarding to any of your accounts, on-campus or off-campus, including your UIC Gmail account.
