The Outlook Web App (OWA) lets you access your Office 365 mailbox using a web browser from any computer that has an Internet connection. This page contains information on how to use OWA to read and send email messages, organize contacts, create tasks, and manage your calendar. This page also provides information on how to use OWA to manage global settings for your Office 365 account, such as email forwarding, automatic replies (vacation messages), and inbox rules (email filters).
Accessing the Outlook Web App for Office 365
The Outlook Web App (OWA) is the web-based email client for Office 365. In order to access OWA, open a supported web browser and go to www.usc.edu/office365. If you haven’t already signed into any USC single sign-on services from your web browser for the day, you will be taken to the red USC NetID sign-in screen where you will log in using your USC NetID and password.
Signing Out of OWA
When you are finished using the Outlook Web App, you should exit your web browser by closing all open tabs to ensure you have properly signed out of your Office 365 account.
