    Beware of spam / phishing emails


    Due to recent phishing emails sent to many Middlesex University students, some emails may appear to come from a known person like a tutor or another member of staff.

    Please be extra vigilant when responding to emails. While we try to block as much spam as possible, as with any email account, some still annoyingly slips through.

    Here are some tips to keep your personal details safe:

    • Hover the cursor over any link embedded in the email to see if the address is valid and do not click unless certain the email is from a trusted source.
    • If the sender appears to be asking you to click a link you are uncertain about – call or email them to check before you follow the link.
    • If the email is marked as SPAM, this is because at some point it has come from a non-Middlesex email address. Any email marked with a SPAM should be considered as suspicious.
    • Please be aware, Middlesex University staff will never ask for your account passwords. If you are ever prompted to supply these details, please delete the email.

    Don’t take the bait – delete the email immediately.

    If you require further assistance, please contact UniHelp
