Waiariki student email uses a web-based system called Outlook Live. It's very similar to Hotmail, Gmail or Live Webmail accounts.
Your Waiariki email address
Student emails will be two or three letters plus three or more digits. The rationale is that since you can't choose what it will be, it provides you with a level of anonymity while still being somewhat meaningful to you and those who know you.
E.g., Flo Jo Adelina Beethoven may become fjb123.
Use the email finder page to find out what your Waiariki email address is.
Your default password is w.ddmmyyyy (that's a little w and a dot, and ddmmyyyy is your date of birth.)
E.g., w.25021992 for 25 Feb 1992.
Note: You can change this if you wish (and we suggest that you do).
