Over the next few weeks, your student email account will be moving from Gmail to Microsoft Outlook which is part of Office 365.
Your email address won't change but when you access your new student email account, you will be using Outlook rather than Gmail.

Benefits of moving to Office 365
You will be able to use Office 365 anywhere once you have logged into your account which means you will be able to access your account from your phone via the Microsoft App available for iOS, Android and Windows Phones. You can also access Office 365 from home on your own PC or laptop.
All your work will also be automatically saved to the Cloud (this can be turned off). This means you won't lose your work due to a power cut or your laptop dying.
You will be able to collaborate and share easily with one another. Real time changes can be made to one shared copy instead of having multiple local copies and versions.
You will always have the latest updates for the software from Microsoft and you will have 1 TB of free storage in OneDrive – the equivalent to 17,000 hours of music or 40 days of movies!
Check UniLife for regular updates on the move to Office 365. If you have any queries about your current University Gmail account or the transition to Microsoft Outlook please contact IT Services.
