Student move to Office 365

Move to Outlook from Gmail

Eligible students were able to opt-in to move from Gmail to Outlook at a time of their choosing between November 2018 & June 2019. This opt-in period has now ended.

Eligible students who did not opt in will be mass migrated between 15 & 28 July. These students will be emailed in advance of their move to explain the process, and again when it is completed.

Medical students who were not able to opt in because of specific calendar requirements will be mass migrated over the weekend of 13/14 July. They will also be emailed before & after the move.

If you think you are eligible to migrate but have not received an email by 1 July, please email

Google accounts are going in 2019

Taught students will lose access to their UoB Google accounts at the start of the new academic term and Research students will lose access in December 2019.

Make sure you are not using any Google files or apps via your UoB account before the new academic term starts, or you will risk losing data. See Google apps at Bristol for more information.

If you are using any Google tools that are not covered on the Google apps at Bristol page and need advice on what to do, please use the button above to contact us.

Month by month timeline for moving taught students from Gmail to Outlook

The diagram shows a timeline of what services are available to students and when. Please refer to the months at the top of the diagram as this indicates how long you will retain the service listed on the left-hand side. There are different scenarios for different students; effectively the services available for current students graduating before or during 2019 will not change but all students will move to Outlook by the end of 2019.
