  1. Go to “File” in Outlook”:
    File option in Outlook menu

  2. Select “Add Account”:
    Add Account

  3. If prompted for the account type (depending on the versions of Outlook and Windows you may not see this screen), select “Microsoft 365”:
    Office 365 should be chosen.
  4. In the dialog box, type in your full CUNY Login username ( Note: If you have Teams or OneDrive on your computer and are logged in to your CUNY Login account, this box may already be filled with your CUNY Login:
    Enter your CUNY Login address in the box
  5. You will be directed to the CUNY Web Applications Login page:
    CUNY Web Applications Login

  6. You will be prompted to restart Outlook:
    Restart Outlook for changes to take effect.

  7. Restart Outlook and you will see both your current mailbox and your new Office 365 mailbox:


  • In some instances you may not be prompted to enter your CUNY Login credentials. This may happen if you’re currently logged into OneDrive or Teams on your computer. It will depend on the version of Windows and other applications you’re running. But if you’re not prompted to log in and you have other Microsoft apps logged in with your CUNY Login credentials that is normal
  • The menu items above may look slightly different whether you have Office 2019 or the Office 365 version of Outlook installed on your computer. Most Baruch office desktops have Office 2019; if you downloaded Outlook on your home computer to use during the pandemic you probably have Office 365.
  • These instructions do not work for Office 2016 or earlier. Office 2019 or later is the supported version of Outlook for access to M365.
  • You do not need to use the Baruch VPN to access either your current Exchange email or the M365 mailbox.
