Service Overview: Shared Email Service at UWB
The University of Washington Bothell campus has standardized on the use of Shared UW NetID addresses (firstname.lastname@example.org) with UW Office 365 mailboxes for shared resource email. UWBIT no longer provisions independent @uwb.edu email, including shared resource mailboxes. UW Office 365 email provides a set of standardized features including calendaring.
For information about Shared NetIDs, please see: shared-uw-netids
You can request a Shared NetID yourself directly from UWIT or UWBIT can do so for you. Please note NetIDs are limited to 8 characters.
Once a Shared NetID has been obtained, it can be provisioned with UW Office 365. Provisioning a Shared UW NetID with UW Office 365 involves switching the current email setting (deskmail, gmail, none, etc.) to UW Office 365 Exchange Online email. This process may take 24-48 hours.
To request UW Office 365 for a shared NetID, please email email@example.com, call 425-352-3456, or visit the UWB IT Helpdesk in LB2-218.
