UBC is changing how it delivers broadcast emails to faculty and staff. The new system will allow broadcast messages to be directed to Vancouver faculty and staff.
As of Dec. 16, UBC broadcast e-mails to all faculty, staff and student employees will be delivered to the e-mail address listed in the UBC HR database (you may know this as the Self-Service Portal). Messages intended only for UBC Okanagan faculty and staff will continue to be sent in the normal global e-mail manner.
To ensure that you continue to receive important broadcast e-mails, please log into the UBC HR Faculty and Staff Self-Service portal at https://www.msp.ubc.ca to check that your e-mail address is accurate and up-to-date. You will need your campus-wide login (CWL) to access Self-Service.
Note: If you are off-campus, please ensure that you first connect to the UBC myVPN service in order to access the self-service portal. Instructions for setting up myVPN are available at the IT website.
How to update your email address
- Go to https://www.msp.ubc.ca.
- Under myPersonal Info on the left side of the screen, click on the Email Addresses.
- Ensure that the email listed in the Primary email field is correct. This is the address that will be used by the new UBC broadcast email service.
- While you are in Self-Service, please ensure that your Emergency Contacts are current.
