Employee email migration beginning

Monday, June 15, 2020

As communicated on February 12, the Office 365 employee email investigation recommendation to proceed with a staged migration of the majority of employee email to the Microsoft Office 365 cloud environment was approved. Working closely with our Microsoft partners, Information Systems & Technology (IST) has carefully assessed the requirements for the O365 deployment and is prepared to begin this work. 

In the coming weeks, Academic Support units will be contacted by their IST Account Rep to coordinate a migration plan. The migration of Academic Support client email accounts will take place between mid-June and the end of August 2020. 

IST will begin migrating Faculty groups during the fall 2020 term. However, Faculty groups interested in migrating to Office 365 during the spring term may submit a request ticket to rt@uwaterloo.ca

More information on the migration process – what to expect, migration schedule, and support resources – will be added to this website as this work gets underway.
