What are Student Mailing Lists?

The student mail lists facilitate communication with groups of students by e-mail.

They facilitate:

  • lecturers sending mail messages to students registered on particular modules or courses they are associated with
  • staff sending messages to all students in a particular school or faculty
  • staff sending messages to students based on year of study or level of study
  • students sending messages to other students in their module or on their course
  • The student mailing lists were upgraded for the academic year 2015/2016 to use the DCU Apps Google Groups platform. If you have any questions in relation to the student mailing lists please contact us.
Who Can Send Messages to the Lists?

Who Can Send Messages to the Lists?

The student mailing lists will only accept e-mails sent from valid DCU e-mail addresses.

  • Staff - DCU e-mail addresses are whitelisted and can send messages to all student e-mail lists.
  • Students - Students that are whitelisted to send messages to lists that they are a member of.
  • Students - Students can not post messages to lists they are not a member of.
  • Please contact the Students Union in relation to advertising social events or selling second hand books etc.
  • Students who are teaching must use Loop to send messages to the students on relevant modules if they do not have a staff contract/e-mail account. The registered teacher on the module must add the student as a teacher in Loop first.

 Viewing List Messages/Archives  

All messages sent to student e-mail lists are archived. So even if you have deleted the original e-mail message it is stored in the Google Groups archive for that list.

All staff can search for and view the Google Groups archives for all student lists.

Students can only view the archives for lists that they are a member of.

To view previous messages to a list you have 2 options.

  1. Find your course or module in the classlists facility linked from the Staff Apps page. The page for your course/module will contain a link to the relevant archives.
  2. In your DCU Apps account go the groups page and search for the list of interest.
Contact a particular student on your module or programme  

DCU staff can view the members of student mailing lists - so you can find individual e-mail addresses in this way.

Also, you can use the new classlists facility to view individual student details.
