Office365 provides our email system for students, PGRs and alumni.  It also includes OneDrive storage space, and software applications.


We call our student Office365 email system Unimail.

The web address is  Further access details are available on our Login Details page.


As part of Office365, students and PGRs have 1 Tb of storage space available on Microsoft’s OneDrive system.

Details are in our Office 365 2016 – OneDrive guide.

This is in addition to the storage provided by the university, often referred to as the K: drive.

Microsoft provides software so that you can connect directly to your OneDrive – alternatively you can reach it via the web, from your UniMail account.

More information is available from Microsoft’s web site .  This includes downloads for windows versions, phones and tablets, as well as ‘getting started’ guides.  You can sign into Microsoft’s information pages using your UniMail login details.

The OneDrive is provided for students.  It does not form part of the alumni email-for-life entitlement.  If you wish to download your OneDrive files so that you can keep them when you leave, then follow the instructions in our Office365-SavingOneDriveFiles guide.

Sharing OneDrive files

You can share files on your OneDrive with other people.  Information is included here Office 365 2016 – OneDrive.  It’s important that if you’re wanting to share with staff, you must untick the ‘Require sign-in’ box.

Office365 software apps

Students and PGRs, but not alumni, can access Microsoft’s Cloud versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote.  You can also download these apps to your PC or mobile device.  More information is available on our Office365 Apps page.

Microsoft password reset

We recommend changing your password only within Office365, not by using Microsoft’s separate password reset system.
