E-mail services are available to all persons with the CTU identity. Their operation is part of the university-wide Microsoft 365 solution, operated by CTU CIV. Detailed information can be found at IST portal. The main system for registering CTU e-mail addresses, managing private addresses and choosing a preferred e-mail address is Usermap.
E-mail services are generally governed by Rector’s Order No.7/2021 Rules of Operation and Use of E-mail Services at CTU a other regulations. The user is obliged to continuously monitor the contents of his/her e-mail inbox during his/her time at the University. At the same time, the order prohibits automatic redirection of e-mail communication from the CTU mailbox to non-CTU e-mail addresses.
- To access your mailbox, you can use the Outlook web app .
- For Microsoft services log-in, use the CTU username in the form
<username>@cvut.czand the CTU password. For more information, see Účet Microsoft.
- You can manage your e-mail addresses in the Usermap application in E-mail address settings.
- To increase security of your e-mail correspondence, you can set up signing and encryption of messages by personal certificates.
Newcomers to FIT are not automatically set up with e-mail accounts. It is therefore up to each user to make sure that they have exactly one e-mail address marked as preferred in the Usermap application. See Preferred e-mail.
Setting up a mailbox
Use the following procedure to create an university e-mail mailbox for yourself:
In the pop-up window continue by selecting an e-mail address in the

Students of faculty programs are required to communicate with the school only from the e-mail address corresponding to the faculty domain, i.e. @fit.cvut.cz. Please, make sure you are setting up your mailbox with an address in that format. You can optionally use other addresses offered (e.g. @student.cvut.cz) as delivery aliases, but the preferred address should always be the one from the faculty domain.
Once the request is submitted, the mailbox will be created within the next day (or a few hours) of the request. You will NOT be automatically notified when your mailbox is ready to use. If you mailbox is not accessible in 2 days after submitting a request, please contact us at helpdesk. To access your mailbox, you can use the Outlook web app by logging in with your Microsoft university account. You can also use one of the supported mail clients to access your mailbox.
The addresses created are aliases only, so you receive email at all addresses listed in Email address settings in Usermap marked as Receiving.
