Faculty, Staff, and Grad Students FASmail
UBC offers a free FASMail (Faculty & Staff Email System) Email account to all UBC faculty and staff. This account provides you with a 5GB Inbox, calendar, and task list. It is accessible via Windows, Mac, Linux, and smart device (tablet, phone, etc.). Once you receive your UBC Employee ID and Campus Wide Login (CWL), Botany IT will assist you in setting up a FASMail account. Please contact the Botany Main Office if you do not know your UBC Employee ID. For Grad students without Employee ID (without an employment appointment), there will be a cost setting up the FASmail account. Students without Employee ID should get approval from their supervisor for setting up a FASmail account. The cost for mailbox not funded by UBC is $12/mailbox per fiscal year (billed annually, not up-front).
The standard FASmail format for Botany department is firstname.lastname@example.org.
