Each student at La Trobe University has access to an email account while they are enrolled as a student. Your La Trobe University email account is the primary method of communication between you and the University, so it is important to check it regularly throughout the year.
Your email account
You can log in to your email account via the Outlook Web App (OWA) on any computer with an internet connection and an internet browser installed. To log in, visit http://owa.latrobe.edu.au [link to http://owa.latrobe.edu.au] and enter the La Trobe username and password you received on your first statement of account. This is the same username and password that you use to log in to the LMS, Student Online and many other University systems.
To reset your password, visit the Online Password Reset Utility Your email address will be your username, followed by @students.latrobe.edu.au
Your email account allows you up to store up to 200 megabytes of emails. Please note that this cannot be increased for student accounts.
Your account after La Trobe
Access to your University email account is only available to you while you are an enrolled student at La Trobe. This is important to remember if you are subscribing to online services, or providing your email address when applying for jobs etc. Once you graduate, or once you're not enrolled in any subjects, you will receive a notification email two weeks before access is no longer possible. If you believe you should still have access as an enrolled student, you should contact your faculty office to check and amend your enrolment. Otherwise, SITS can assist you with archiving your email should this be required.
