Email - Office 365 Outlook

UIS takes advantage of the Office 365 Outlook service for UIS email accounts starting in 2021. Outlook on Office 365 provides easy access to email and calendar as well as a robust infrastructure that provides the most reliable access. Users will be able to benefit from access to new features and functionality to the service as they are rolled out and they will not have a storage quota which will reduce the need for archiving and deleting of email before one is ready to do so.

Ways to Check Email


Accessing Webmail can either be done by going to or in a web browser.

You will be directed to login to your UIS Microsoft Office 365 account with your UIS NetID and password. Once you are logged in you will have access to your email, calendar, and contacts.
