Email & Calendar

All students, faculty and staff at The University of Iowa have an email alias based on the format firstname-lastname@uiowa.edu.  This is the address we recommend you give out to others.  To read more about the email alias and how it works see this page.

Most students now receive their email and calendar from Microsoft's Office 365.  Office 365 provides email, calendar, file storage, Office Web Apps and more.  Students can access Office 365 through Microsoft Outlook, smartphones, tablets, the web and more.

Faculty and staff currently receive their email and calendar services through Hawkmail.  This service provides faculty and staff the ability to send/receive email, schedule meetings with others on campus, manage their personal calendars and more.  Hawkmail can be accessed using Microsoft Outlook, smartphones, tablets, the web and more.
