Office 365

UAB provides email for students, faculty and staff through Office 365, which means you get access to not only email but calendaring, contact management, task management functions and the Microsoft Office suite of applications, including Word, Excel and PowerPoint, all by using your BlazerID and password. You can access this powerful suite of programs easily online or download to your devices.

Keeping BlazerID​

UAB student grace period for use of your accounts ends up to one year after the last semester the student attended classes, if student left UAB in good standing. Your Office 365 account provides access to email, any documents or files you have stored in Office 365, and online Office applications. Learn more about this process here.

What do I need to do? 

  • Make sure your mail apps are updated. To connect to your UAB email, mail clients and apps must support modern authentication. Email applications that may not work for UAB email after this change include older versions of Outlook, native mail apps on mobile devices and custom applications. If you are using an older app, update to a new version, such as:
    • Outlook 2016 for Mac or later
    • Outlook for iOS and Android
    • Mail for iOS 11.3.1 or later
  • Log in again. After the change occurs on the date in the email you received, log in again to Office 365 apps such as Outlook and Teams. You will be prompted to use Duo. Be sure to click the “Remember me” option in Duo so that you don’t have to use Duo again for 30 days.

How do I configure my mail app?

What if I get a message that access to my email is blocked after I make changes to my iOS app?

Remove your account from your mail app and add it again.

What do I do if I can't access my email even after I update my mail applications?
