(Also known as Email (for Faculty & Staff), Microsoft Exchange)

Exchange is our email service for faculty and staff across campus. It is a sophisticated messaging platform that provides rich and efficient access to email, calendars, contacts, and tasks. Exchange also has an inclusive address book of all users on campus as well as the functionality for shared calendars and schedules. This service integrates with university's Microsoft Active Directory identification and authentication services. Users can check their mail and calendar through Microsoft Outlook, the Outlook Web Access website, or with a compatible device such as a smartphone or tablet.
