About

The University’s Information Technology Services department will transition University of Virginia students from Google to Office 365 for email, calendar and files. This step helps achieve the University’s long-standing goal of having faculty, staff and students collaborating and communicating across one platform. 

Completed Transition

January 6, 2022, 10 a.m.

The transition from UVA Gmail to Office 365 is complete.  

  • All Gmail messages should be in your O365 account.   
  • Your Gmail contacts should be in your O365 contacts.  
  • Your Google Drive files should be in OneDrive. 

January 4, 2022, 1 p.m.

Law students should have access to outlook at https://portal.office.com  

  • Students can send new email from O365. 
  • Students will receive new email in O365. 
  • Please be patient while the migration process finishes. 

January 4, 2022, 8 a.m.

Good morning. Unfortunately a few key IT members were unavailable at 8 a.m. due to inclement weather. We plan to start the migration at noon today. Thank you very much for your patience and understanding.

Migration Details 

UVA Law students are scheduled for account migration in early January 2022 to avoid unnecessary disruptions during the spring 2022 exam timeframe.  

January 4, 2022 

8:00 a.m.  

  • UVA Law student Gmail accounts are scheduled for the final cutover to O365.  
  • Gmail access will be disabled. 
  • New email will be routed to O365 instead of Gmail and available in O365 soon after 9:00 a.m. 

9:00 a.m. (or soon after) Law students should have access to outlook at: https://portal.office.com  

  • Students can send new email from O365. 
  • Students will receive new email in O365. 
  • Please be patient while the migration process finishes. 

Law IT will send email to students when the transition is complete. 

Google Drive and Google Credentials 

Students will now have access to their UVA Google Drive until they graduate. Your Google Drive files will be copied over to Office 365 OneDrive during the transition, so they will be accessible in both accounts. 

Students will keep their UVA Google credentials until they graduate. That means you can keep using your Google credentials to sign into other applications (e.g., Netflix, Spotify).

We strongly recommended that students use the Office 365 tools (such as OneDrive, Teams, Groups, etc.) for collaboration and document-sharing. Next year’s 1L class will not have a UVA Google account and will only have access to UVA Office 365 tools.

Google Gmail and Calendar 

Students’ UVA Gmail/Calendar will be disabled once the transition starts on Jan. 4. Your email messages and calendar events will be copied to Office 365 (Outlook) and you will use that platform starting Jan. 6.
