All registered students of the NWU are assigned a NWU Microsoft as well as a Gmail address.
What is my NWU Microsoft address?
email@example.com (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org)
How will the NWU know what email address to send my correspondence to?
Students are encouraged to provide their NWU Microsoft email address, as the official email address for communication from the NWU.
This can be done during the registration process or by clicking here.
How do I access my NWU Microsoft mail?
Click here to get more information about the installation and use of Microsoft 365. After installing Microsoft 365, use the Outlook desktop client to access your email.
If you don't have the Outlook client installed, you can also use the Webmail client to access your email online. (When asked between Work/School and Personal account, choose Work/School account; When asked between NWU Single Sign-on and Active directory, choose Active directory)
How long will I be able to use my NWU Microsoft address?
The NWU email address is only active if a student is affiliated with the NWU. This address provides a student access to the Microsoft 365 suite of applications (Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.)
What about my Gmail address?
The NWU Gmail email address still exists.
