Student email upgrade to M365 email

Last updated 10 June 2022

We’re excited to announce that Microsoft 365 accounts will be provisioned for all students by September 2022. The Microsoft 365 collaboration suite will give you access to Microsoft Office, including Microsoft Teams for courses or clubs, OneDrive to store or share coursework, and a feature-packed email service. As part of these changes, Microsoft 365 email for students will become the email service provider for all students and your UVic email will be automatically upgraded by September 2022.

Microsoft 365 email for students delivers more than just email. You can: 

  • Send and receive email in a breeze with our modern and mobile-friendly interface.
  • Use the calendar to organize your busy life. Import your course schedule and Brightspace assignment due dates, arrange a meeting, and more.
  • Manage all your to-do’s. Set reminders, share files, and assign tasks to others.
  • Access a list of key UVic contacts in one place.

New UVic Students

As a new UVic student, you will be issued a Microsoft 365 email account automatically. You will receive an email when it has been created.

Current UVic Students

Current UVic students can get ahead of the game and sign up for M365 Email for Students now in UVic’s Online Services portal.

We strongly recommend you sign-up this Summer at a time that suits your schedule. If you haven’t signed up by August 17, your account will be automatically migrated between August 18-31.
