How to Setup Unisa Email
Setting up your account and getting your details is just as simple. Here’s how:
Step 1: Visit the myUnisa website at my.unisa.ac.za.
Step 2: Click on the “Claim Unisa login” link on the top left menu.
Step 3: A new page will load, prompting you to enter your student number. Add your student number and click “Continue”.
Step 4: Enter your surname, your full name, your date of birth and, finally, your South African ID number for South African citizens, or your passport number for foreign students, on the page that loads and then click “Continue”. Remember to enter either an ID number or a passport number, not both.
Step 5: Read through the page that loads and check all the boxes to acknowledge that you’ve read all of the information provided. Then click the “Acknowledge” button to redirect to the final page in the process.
Step 6: The final page will display your myLife e-mail address and your initial Unisa password which is for both the myLife and myUnisa systems. Your initial Unisa password will also be sent to the cellphone number displayed on the page for safekeeping.
Remember, the password provided is your initial myUnisa password. You can change it at any time on myUnisa.
Please note: If you are a re-registering student, you will not need to follow this process if your myLife and myUnisa passwords are still active.
Good luck with your studies for the upcoming year. If you have any enquiries, don’t hesitate to contact us for assistance or to watch the short video clip on how to access your myLife e-mail account and login to myUnisa.
