Your online facilities

Wherever you mostly spend your time at University, you’ll find our digital support systems and programmes keep you connected to all the vital processes that make your life as a student go smoothly.

Your WLV account and email

When you enrol, you will be given your own WLV IT account and an @wlv.ac.uk email address, giving you access to the virtual learning environment and other internal University systems. 

 
On the IT Services webpages, you can access a wealth of tools and services such as free Microsoft Office for the duration of your studies, a large variety of self-help guides and IT security support to help you stay safe online.
 
For more information, visit: wlv.ac.uk/its
 
Tutors will contact you using your WLV account so it’s important that you login to your email regularly. To make things even easier, you can choose to forward your WLV email account to your personal one so you have less places to sign in.
 
If you ever forget your password, please contact IT Services on: 01902 322 000 or email: ITsupport@wlv.ac.uk
