Microsoft Office 365 for education is here!

Please note that the MYCPUT student email system has been upgraded by Microsoft to Office 365

With Office 365, you will now have two separate accounts:

CPUT Office 365 account: you will continue to use Microsoft Outlook Web App or Microsoft Outlook to view and send email from your university account, but you will sign in at https://www.outlook.com/mycput.ac.za using the same user name and password. Please note: In Office 365 you will not see the CPUT logo, but CPUT still administers this account.

Personal Microsoft account: this personal account will give you access a personal SkyDrive (now called OneDrive), Messenger, and other Microsoft services. Please note that CPUT does not administer this account. As a result, CPUT cannot reset the password for you. As a new student you need to sign up for a new personal account. Senior students, who had access to Onedrive before, would still have access. Access to OneDrive and Messenger: https://onedrive.live.com/about/en-za/
