Student e-mail and authentication system

Password change / retrieval

The password to access the unive account must be changed at least every 6 months. If you need to change it, you forget it or if it has expired, then you can go to www.unive.it/newpass.


Authentication system

Thanks to the University Authentication system, all Ca’ Foscari students and doctorates have unique login details (a single username and password) to access online applications and services, such as:

  • email mariculationnumber@stud.unive.it and Google Apps for Education services
  • University Personal Area (Career and ESSE3 Services)

Remember not to share your password with anyone, not even with university staff. Any requests for personal passwords is online fraud (phishing). To find out what phishing is go to this site Polizia di Stato [ITA].


E-mail account

Gmail email service

The email service is managed by the operator Google, according to the following user policies: 

The email service is one of many free services available from the operator Google, as part of an agreement with the University.

Access to the email account

You can access your email account mariculationnumber@stud.unive.it only via the web address http://mail.stud.unive.it and not via www.gmail.com.

You will need to type the institutional login details (login and password, the same those used to access the Personal Area of the site) and click on "Access to the service". The password must be entered as supplied, i.e. with alphabetic characters in upper and lower case.

It is possible to activate the forward function from the mariculationnumber@stud.unive.it to an e-mail already in use by clicking on “Settings" and then on “Forward and POP/IMAP" (link on the upper right hand side)  It would be beneficial for the student if all mail to the University came from the address matriculationnumber@stud.unive.it in order to allow the University immediate and unequivocal identification of the sender.

It is possible to set up your preferred “client” e-mail (MS Outlook, Thunderbird etc) to receive and send mail from your student account: matriculationnumber@stud.unive.it.The instructions for the configuration of receiving e-mails are available at the following web address:

Sending large attachments

In order to send large size attachments, it is possible to use the filesender service.
First, you must effect your login selecting the University (Ca' Foscari University of Venice), then insert your username and password (the same one used to access the personal area on the website). At this point, it is possible to compose an e-mail message and upload the files to send by clicking on the button “choose file”.
