Research postgraduate mailboxes are hosted by the Microsoft Office 365 cloud-based service.

Access your email and calendar on your desktop at work using the desktop client Microsoft Outlook or via a web browser using Outlook Web Access (OWA). If you share a desktop PC with others, we recommend you use OWA.


Microsoft Outlook is the standard email and calendaring package for staff and research postgraduate students at the University of Aberdeen.

Part of the Microsoft Office suite, Outlook is a personal information management tool that displays your email, contacts and calendar within one integrated product.

Outlook Web Access (OWA)

OWA allows you to manage your university email and calendar remotely via a web browser from any location that provides internet access; this means you can keep in touch when you are off-campus.
