Symbol E-mail

All students and employees of the Bauhaus-Universität have a personal e-mail address according to the scheme firstname.lastname@uni-weimar.de. The faculties and departments of the Bauhaus-Universität use this address as standard for sending official information. The e-mail inbox should therefore be checked regularly.
Employees receive the groupware service »Exchange« for e-mail use and thus support for mail, calendar and contact management.
