How to access your University email

Students, staff and associates can access their University email from anywhere in the world at

You always need to log in to Office 365 using your full university email address as your username, and your password is case-sensitive.

You can also access email via iExeter.

Staff and associates - it is recommended you use the Outlook client for greater functionality. This makes Calendar sharing, and accessing Shared Mailboxes much easier. If you don't have Outlook installed on your Staff PC or laptop please contact SID pr view these setup guides:
