Email, Calendars, & Instant Messaging

Everything you need to know about your UT email, calendar, and instant messaging.

The University of Tennessee uses the university-supplied e-mail account as an official means of communication. Official communication can include, but is not limited to, information and notices about financial obligations, student conduct, course schedules, canceled courses, financial aid, emails from the Chancellor, Provost, your professors, Online@UT (Canvas) communication, and OIT account and service information.  OIT advises using your UT email account exclusively for university-related matters.
