Starting this June, UWA will begin migrating some of its IT services to Office 365, Microsoft’s cloud-based productivity suite.
The Office 365 platform will provide staff with enhanced Office-suite functionality across a wide range of operating systems and devices (i.e. mobile phones, tablets), while improving our collaboration capabilities both internally and with external business partners. Notably, email quotas will also be greatly increased.
The first phase of this migration will be focused on our Email and Calendaring Service & SharePoint environment, while subsequent phases will investigate other services the Office 365 platform can provide, with assistance and input from business representatives across the University.
Staff will receive detailed instructions when their Email or SharePoint services are being migrated, and can contact their Service Delivery Centre if they require any further assistance.
Mobile Device GuidesOnce your mailbox has been migrated to Office 365, you'll need to configure any mobile devices that you use to check your UWA email address.
Choose from the list below based on the mobile device you want to configure:
Office 365 on Android (e.g. phones made by Samsung, Google, LG, etc.)
Office 365 on iOS (e.g. Apple iPhones, iPads)
In addition to using the inbuilt Android/iOS applications, Microsoft has created a standalone Outlook app for both mobile platforms. To set up the Outlook app on your device, follow the link below:
