Email, Wi-fi and mobile phones

Institutional Email
All students at UniPD are given an email address, which is activated after enrolment. Username and password are the same to log in to Uniweb. You can use your institutional email via browser only. "Calendar" and "Contacts" tools are integrated in your account.

Mobile phones
If you cannot/do not want to use the International Roaming, an Italian SIM card is surely the best option to use your mobile phone once you are in Italy.  You can get either a prepaid SIM card (ricaricabile), which can be recharged at tobacconists', bars, ATMs or online, or a postpaid SIM card (abbonamento), i.e. a contract at a fixed monthly rate.
SIM cards can be charged according to a wide range of different mobile phone tariffs provided by Italian companies: make sure you choose the most suitable for you and you check carefully the terms and conditions!
