Microsoft 365 Apps and Trinity MyZone

Microsoft 365 Apps is intended as a complimentary service to your Trinity MyZone account.

You are still expected to use your Mail, Calendar and Drive in MyZone as your main productivity tools for your Trinity studies.

Official Trinity communications will continue to be sent to your @tcd.ie email address in MyZone.

After you complete your studies

You will have access to Microsoft 365 Apps for the duration of your studies in Trinity.

When you are due to finish your studies, you will be informed that your Trinity computer account will expire and that you will lose access to the Microsoft 365 Apps service.

As a result you may wish to backup any data saved to your OneDrive prior to your account expiry. Remember that you retain your MyZone account for life, including access to your MyZone Drive.
