ABOUT THE UPGRADE
ICIT will be upgrading your Hunter College Outlook email account to Microsoft Office365 Outlook email. This upgrade includes access to Microsoft Office365 (M365), a suite of cloud-based software products including Outlook email, MS-Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Teams, OneDrive storage, and others. As a cloud-based solution, Office365 allows you to run these programs, as well as access your files, from anywhere with an internet connection.
Office365 provides increased reliability, comprehensive cybersecurity features including Multi-Factor Authentication, and enhanced accessibility features. You will be provided with a total of 1TB of storage which includes 100GB allocated for your email account. All CUNY colleges will transition to Microsoft Office365 before the Fall 2023 semester. For people working at multiple CUNY Colleges Office365 Outlook email will allow you to consolidate all your email into a single mailbox.
You will keep your current Hunter College email address, but accessing your Microsoft Office365 account will be done using your CUNYfirst login credentials. After the upgrade, you will use FirstName.LastNameXX@Login.CUNY.Edu and your CUNYfirst Password. See below for important information on accessing M365 email in the Microsoft cloud.
Student ‘myHunter’ email will remain as is and separate from faculty/staff email.
