Office 365, Email, New Faculty, Staff, and Graduate Students

On August 14, 2018 - New Faculty, Staff, and Graduate students will automatically get Office 365 mailboxes as they complete UI New Hire or NetID Claim.

An Office 365 mailbox will be created for them when their new NetID and correct Staff or Student affiliation is added to their account. The Office 365 mailbox will be ready to use about 2 hours after they claim their NetID.


They will be able to use https://outlook.office.com or email clients to access their mailboxes. Please refer to the related knowledge articles below for email client configuration instructions.

The change to campus on-boarding/admit processes - process change details:
Previously, new hires (faculty and staff) and admitted graduate students were asked to create their Exchange mailbox through prompts in UI New Hire or NetID Claim. As of August 14, 2018, those sites will no longer create mailboxes. Mailboxes will be created through auto-provisioning steps as part of licensing for Office 365.

Implications:
Staff/Faculty/Graduate students that already have a NetID but have not created their Exchange mailbox through NetID claim or partnercomputing.illinois.edu by August 14, 2018 will need manual assistance from Technology Services to get a mailbox because they will not have access to partnercomputing.illinois.edu, and auto-provisioning will not catch their established NetID.

Please contact consult@illinois.edu or 217-244-7000 with the NetID and an alternative email address we can use to alert that the mailbox is ready for them.
