Your Brock Email
As a Brock student, you should be using your official Brock Student Email. Your @brocku.ca account is the only way we can verify that you are you!
All communications about classes, residence, Brock Card, etc. will be sent to your student email only. So check it regularly and be sure to use that account for all emails related to your career at Brock.
Now that you're checking your account, let's talk about email etiquette. Remember, email is not like texting, so proper greetings and pleasantries are required. You always want to provide the necessary information and reason for your request in the initial email, and do so with respect. Think of your student email as a professional or work email!
