10.11.2. E-Mail and Office 365

All students who matriculate to Oglethorpe, and all faculty and staff who are hired, automatically receive an Oglethorpe e-mail account. All students and employees are reminded that Oglethorpe e-mail is the official means of communication on all Oglethorpe-related matters (see Sec. 3.6.1.). There are a variety of ways of configuring an Oglethorpe e-mail account for sending and receiving messages on personal computers, computers in computer labs across campus, and on mobile devices. Please visit itservices.oglethorpe.edu/ for more information. The IT services help desk will also assist with setting up or troubleshooting e-mail accounts.

All Oglethorpe users have access to Office365 through any web browser by going to https://login.microsoftonline.com and signing in to the “work or school” account section with your Oglethorpe username and password. Once logged in, you can download Office 365 to your personal computer and on up to five devices (e.g., iPad, iPhone, Android, etc.). Oglethorpe encourages the use of OneDrive to store your OU-related files.

Oglethorpe e-mail account names and e-mail passwords are used to log on to other software and services provided by Oglethorpe including, but not limited to, Office 365, Canvas, OASIS, OUConnect and Handshake.

Students are responsible for protecting sensitive personal information. Students should not provide personal information to unsolicited emails, which include but are not limited to job postings or urgent information requests.
