- Tap Add Account at the bottom of this list, and select Microsoft Exchange from the options.
- Enter your full University email address (usually your NetID followed by @illinois.edu) in the Email field. The Description field will automatically fill in "Exchange", though you can change it to any title you'd like it to appear under in the Accounts list.
- Tap Next in the upper-right corner. A popup will appear asking about discovering your Exchange account information, and if you'd like to Configure Manually or Sign In. Select Sign In.

- Read the warning about iOS Accounts, and select Accept.
- Select the Exchange-related features you'd like to use for your account, and select Save.
- Navigate to the Mail app to verify that your University account appears there now. It may take several minutes to download the contents of your mailbox.
