Find out more about your Trinity student email address.
What is MyZone?
As a student at Trinity, you will receive a Trinity email address. It looks a lot like Gmail, but we call it MyZone. Once you graduate, you’ll have your Trinity email address for as long as you choose to use it.
You’ll notice that your Trinity IT username is the prefix in your email address. So, for example, if your username is JBLOGGS then your email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
While studying, you will receive all official Trinity communications at your Trinity email address so you are expected to check it regularly.
Unlimited storage space and other features in MyZone
MyZone offers unlimited storage space and includes other features such as calendar, contacts, Google Drive and much more.
As part of MyZone, Google Drive is unlimited online data storage which allows you to create new documents and upload data files. Files can be created and uploaded to Google Drive from any location, at home or in college, and are available from any internet-connected device.
