Technion Office 365-Cloud Services

General

The Technion maintains an advanced e-mail services system. This central system is based on Microsoft Office 365 Cloud infrastructure and is intended for Technion students for all degrees, for academic and administrative staff members and for graduate students as they complete their studies.

Cloud accounts of users of this service are verified by the Technion central authentication system, used for uniform authentication for additional computing services on campus.

A user who has an account in the cloud receives a 50GB mailbox, a calendar, user sharing, and  1TB (!) OneDrive for business - storage for any type of files.

In addition, as a unique bonus, all cloud users are entitled to five Office  installation on computers and mobile devices.

Upon transition from campus to alumni, the graduate student will lose his/her right to use the Office products and the OneDrive folder, but the campus address and the mailbox contents will be saved and moved to alumni.

Access to Office 365 is at - http://outlook.technion.ac.il
