Click here for step by step instructions to access your Office 365 email account.
For students prior to Spring 2022: Even though you log into email using your MyColumbiaID@colum.edu this is not your email address. Your email address uses the following format: FirstInitialLastName@colum.edu. If you have a preferred first name, then your email will begin with that first initial of that name. To locate your email address, log in to Office 365 and open the Outlook application, go to My Account and select Personal Info; your email address will be displayed under Contact Details.
You can access all the Office applications within a web browser from here as well. (Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Adobe Creative Cloud, &, etc.) You can also store, share, and collaborate on documents with fellow students and instructors with OneDrive.
For Office 365 login support, please contact Client Services by phone at 312-369-7001 or by email at email@example.com Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. If you need to reset your password, you may also follow these steps in order to do so.
