Staff Email and Calendar Service (Office 365)

Staff Email and Calendar Service

Staff members will get an official Trinity email account with Microsoft Office 365.

Your email address will be in the format of: username@tcd.ie. For example, Susan Smith's username is 'ssmith' so her email address will be ssmith@tcd.ie.

The application used by Office 365 for viewing your email and calendar is called 'Outlook'.

Additional Information

Changing your email address to firstname.secondname@tcd.ie

It is not possible to change the default email address, however you may request a 'long' email address in the form firstname.secondname@tcd.ie.

This long address works alongside to the default email address. After the long address is set up, emails sent to the default address will still be received.

Office 365 add-ins and Third party applications

IT Services do not currently support any Office365 add-ins or third-party applications.

Users should be aware that each add-in or application is a service provided not by Microsoft but by a separate third-party company that the University does not have a current contract with.

Enabling the add-in may involve giving the third-party company access to your Trinity College email and Calendar data and in some instances allowing the data to be transferred to the Third-party company.

This may cause data security and privacy issues and may not be GDPR compliant.
