As of November 2022, UW-IT is evaluating the previously announced UW Microsoft service level changes and the information on this page may not be accurate. Further information will be communicated when available. Please contact with any questions.


The Microsoft Service Level Changes project introduces a new way of applying UW Microsoft services to UW Office 365 accounts, depending on UW affiliation(s) and account types (e.g. student, faculty, staff, unpaid academic worker, Department Shared UW NetID, etc.). Reviewing current UW affiliation(s) will help determine what level of Microsoft service will be applied to UW Office 365 accounts beginning in June 2022.

How to check UW affiliation

The Manage UW NetID Resources page provides a list of affiliation(s) associated with a UW NetID. To view affiliation(s), navigate to the page and then expand the + (plus) sign next to the word “Affiliation”.

The topmost entry is typically the affiliation that identifies which UW Microsoft service level the UW NetID’s UW Office 365 account will receive.
