What services are available?

Important messages from the University are sent to your UW email address: or (where UWNetID is your actual UW NetID). You can keep your UW email address after you graduate or no longer attend UW.

UW provides two cloud-based email services:

  • Exchange Online: Exchange Online is the University of Washington’s Microsoft Exchange service providing email, calendar, contacts, and task management. Exchange Online is offered as a service of Microsoft Office 365.
  • UW Google Apps Email via Gmail: Go to the Manage UW Google Apps page to activate the service and set your UW Google Apps password; and then forward your email to Google Apps Mail.

Links to these email services appear on MyFrontPage in the Email box. If you don’t see the Email box, click Add Content to add it.
