Migrate from UW Google to UW Office 365

On This Page

Overview

Migrating email, calendars, and contacts from UW Google to UW Office 365 is a manual process.  This guide uses the Outlook email client provided as part of UW Office 365 ProPlus to facilitate the manual migration.  If you don’t already have Outlook, you can download it using the link below.

Change UW Email Forwarding to UW Office 365

Before migrating data, change your UW email forwarding to UW Office 365 so all new email is sent to your UW Office 365 account.

Migrate Email

Start by configuring Outlook with both your UW Google account and your UW Office 365 account.

When entering your UW email address, use @gamail.uw.edu (this is not a typo) for your UW Google email address (i.e., your UWNetID@gamail.uw.edu).

Once both accounts are configured in Outlook, you can copy email folders between the accounts within Outlook to migrate email between the two.  Moving folders can be unreliable, so copying folders is strongly recommended.

Outlook for Mac: Before starting this process, please switch off the “new” Mac experience per Microsoft support’s instructions.
