Outlook Web App

Outlook Web App (OWA) is a secure website for access to an ITS Exchange account when users are off-campus. OWA can be used anytime there is an Internet connection. When encountering problems with Exchange using Outlook or Entourage, use OWA. 

Public and Shared Computers

Use a public or shared computer if to connect to OWA if a personal device is unavailable. OWA offers some additional protection. If there is no activity with the Exchange server for 30 minutes—such as sending or receiving email—OWA will require an additional login.

When using a personal device, the Private option is more convenient. It offers a much longer time frame before OWA would require an additional login.


In OWA, shared calendars can be viewed the same way as in Outlook. OWA Premium allows multiple day view.
