Office 365 at Walsh

Walsh is a Microsoft Office 365 school.  We use Microsoft's Office 365 portal which includes access to email, OneDrive, online versions of Word, Excel and Powerpoint, and MORE!  In addition, all those in the Walsh community can obtain an updated copy of Microsoft Office at no charge!

Accessing Email

  • Click Office365 at the bottom of the Walsh home page OR  go to  portal.office.com
  • Enter your Walsh email address, username@walsh.edu  (this is the only campus system you will need your full email address)
  • Enter your password
    • If this is the first time you are logging into email you will need to choose a time zone. Walsh is in the U.S. Eastern time zone.
  • You are now logged into your web email.

Clutter is a folder within your Email that will house mail that you do not find as important.  This feature is to assist with only leaving the items you deem most important in your InBox.  You can move items from the Clutter to your Inbox to "train" the system.

Please contact the Help Desk if you do not already have this set this up. Please note:  The limitation of your hard drive size may not allow storage of all OneDrive web files on your computer.
