Students to move to Microsoft Outlook

[26 March 2018]

Students are moving from using Gmail to Microsoft Outlook between now and August 2019. This is part of our Digital Workspace Programme, which will make it much easier for students and staff to communicate, collaborate and share documents. Our staff and postgraduate researchers moved over to Outlook in July 2017.

This is how the changes will happen:

  • All new taught students starting at Bristol from May 2018 onwards will be given an Outlook email and calendar account.
  • Between October 2018 and July 2019, other students (with the exception of those due to graduate before or during 2019) will be able to ‘opt in’ to using Outlook rather than Gmail.
  • Over the summer of 2019, we will automatically migrate any taught students still on Gmail to Outlook (again with the exception of those due to graduate before or during 2019)

All student will be able to use both Google apps and Office 365 until they graduate.
