Starting in Fall 2020, staff groups will begin moving to a new version of Exchange email and calendaring. The new system will offer the Walsh College students and staff an up-to-date web interface for their email and calendar.

Note: if your group is being migrated, you will be notified via email beforehand.

If you need to access your email or calendar right away, sign in with your Walsh College email (loginID@walshcollege.edu) and your password at outlook.office365.com, and follow these instructions later.
