Connect/log in to Outlook Web Access (OWA)

Outlook Web Access (OWA) is the easiest way of checking your email and calendar. Learn how to log in to OWA.

Before you start...

Check your browser compatibility to ensure you meet the minimum requirements for using OWA.


1. Within your web browser, go to the following web address: Outlook - UCL.

2. Log in as follows:

Username: Your userID@ucl.ac.uk
Password: Your UCL password

Note: There is a difference between your username and your email address when signing in to your account: 

  • Your username (your userID@ucl.ac.uk) is used to log in to your account. The email address assigned to your account (e.g. f.bloggs.14 @ ucl.ac.uk) cannot be used as a username to log in.
  • Both your username (your userID@ucl.ac.uk) and email address (e.g. f.bloggs.14 @ ucl.ac.uk) can be used to send email to your account.
