University of Brighton Staff Central

As a member of staff or researcher you will have an account on the university’s Microsoft Exchange email service.
The service enables you to manage your email as well as your online calendar, contacts, and task lists.

How to access your email

Access via an email application

If possible, use an application on your computer. For example:
  • Outlook 2010 or 2013 on MS Windows computers
  • Outlook 2011 on Apple OS X computers
  • Mail on Apple iOS devices such as iPhones and iPads.
Standard staff computers have either Outlook 2010, Outlook 2013 (Windows) or Outlook 2011 (Macintosh) installed on them. We recommend you use one of these email clients for the best experience with email. Outlook 2013 in particular offers more features and better integration with other university software such as Lync.

Home working?

University staff can install the latest version of Office and Outlook on one computer at home for free. See the Office for staff​ pages for more information.

Access with your web browser

​You can also access your email via the web using the staffmail service. If you use Microsoft Internet Explorer you will have all the available tools and features, but staffmail  also works with Safari and Firefox. Google Chrome is not recommended.

To access your email via staffmail:

  • open your web browser and go to https://staffmail.brighton.ac.uk/
  • log in with your university username (for example abc1) but not your full email address
  • select the option for using a private computer in order for all features to work. However, if you are in a public area, such as an internet cafe, you should select the option for a public computer.
