Setting up your @northwestern.edu (Office 365) account on iOS (iPhone or iPad)

While you can use either Microsoft Outlook for iOS or the native Mail and Calendar apps to access your Northwestern Exchange account, you will have a much better experience using Outlook. However, the choice of which app to use is yours. Instructions for configuring both can be found below. Just make sure you don't use the Office 365 app for iOS because it lacks essential functionality.

  2. When prompted with the Northwestern Online Passport
    • Your @northwestern.edu email address should already be populated as the Username

    • Tap Sign in
  3. If prompted to add another account, tap Maybe Later
  4. Choose whether or not to enable notifications

iOS Mail App

  1. Tap Settings > Passwords & Accounts (iOS 11 and above)
