Your Microsoft account

All Cambridge students have a University of Cambridge Microsoft account allocated to them.

Your account lets you download free Office 365 ProPlus software for your personal devices, and use your 1TB OneDrive for Business cloud-based filestore.

Log in to your University of Cambridge Microsoft account using your @cam email address and UIS Password, unless you are a student at the School of Clinical Medicine or the Cambridge Judge Business School (in which case, see the note below).

      School of Clinical Medicine and Cambridge Judge Business School students

The School of Clinical Medicine and the Cambridge Judge Business School have their own EES agreements with Microsoft. If you're studying at either of these institutions, you'll need to log in with the credentials supplied them, not with your UIS user account. The information below does not apply to you!

How to log in

It can take up to 3 hours for your UIS Password to first sync with Microsoft's server, during which time you won't be able to log in to the Microsoft portal. However, once your new UIS Password has synced, you can log in as follows:
