Staff Email, Calendar and Communication Service (Office 365)

All Trinity staff are provided with an official Trinity email account with Microsoft Office 365. Your email address takes the form username@tcd.ie, where 'username' is your computer account username (e.g. Susan Smith's username is 'ssmith' and her email address is ssmith@tcd.ie). You are expected to check this email address regularly as official Trinity communications will be sent to it.

It is not possible to change this email address, although you may request a long email address in the form firstname.secondname@tcd.ie - see the Related pages links below for more information.

As part of Office 365, each member of staff will receive 1 TB of cloud storage with a maximum of 2GB file size and can install Microsoft Office 365 (including all of its apps) on up to five devices.  This means you can install Office 365 on your work computer, your mobile phone or tablet, and home computer and get all of the apps which come with Office 365 on these devices.  Additionally, because you have 1 TB of cloud storage, you will be able to access your data, files, and these apps from any computer just by logging in with your Trinity username (username@tcd.ie) and password.
