Email forwarding (for University card holders)

If you have a current University card you will also have automatically been allocated a University email account (Nexus) with an email address ending .ox.ac.uk

The Library, in common with the Department and all other Oxford University institutions will use this email address to communicate with you.

If you choose not to use this account, it is important that you set up automatic forwarding of email from the University account to your preferred account in order that you do not miss important information.

Setting up forwarding is very simple:

  1. Visit https://register.it.ox.ac.uk/self/nexus
  2. Login with your Single Sign On
  3. Select “Email forwarding address settings” and click Submit
  4. Enter the email address you wish to forward to and click Submit
