Email Migration to Office 365

Faculty and Staff Office 365 Communications

UNCP is moving to the Microsoft cloud. As part of the initial phase of this vision, we’re migrating all our email activity to Office 365 and Exchange Online.

Why are we moving email to the cloud?

  • Improved Convenience – Access your files from any Internet connected computer, tablet or phone at any time.
  • Better Protection – Improved disaster recovery with off-site, cloud-based email storage.
  • Increased Productivity – with more capabilities to work together with colleagues, students.

A better way to communicate, collaborate, and get work done!
