Office 365 Email & Apps
Students, faculty, and staff at the University of North Dakota use the Microsoft Office 365 email system provided by the North Dakota University System (NDUS).
Beginning on March 20th, all students will have Duo Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) enabled for their Office 365 account.
Attention: To fully utilize the security benefits afforded by MFA, some email clients and phone apps will no longer work for UND email after Wednesday, March 20th.Find details here about what actions you may need to take.
Logging into Your Email
Username: All faculty, staff and students will log in with NDUS.identifier username (typically first.lastname) followed by "@NDUS.edu". Your NDUS.identifier is what you currently use to log into Campus Connection, Blackboard and HRMS Self-Service (ex. john.doe@NDUS.edu).
Password: Your password will be the same as the other systems on campus, like Campus Connection, Blackboard and HRMS Employee Self-Service. Email passwords can be changed by changing your NDUS.identifier password.
Note: Your sign-in email address ends with @ndus.edu because your account was created as part of the North Dakota University System (NDUS). This is only used to sign in to your account. Your email address that you will give out is still NDUS.Identifier@und.edu (ex: firstname.lastname@example.org).
Since your email password is associated with your NDUS.identifier, students, faculty and staff may change their email password or reset their password on Your NDUS Account page.
Please make sure you are using the correct sign in email address. Your sign-in email address ends with @ndus.edu.
If you receive an error stating that your account is disabled, please try to clear your browser cache and cookies or try using a different web browser. After clearing your cache and cookies, you will need to completely close out of the browser and reopen it.
A white screen displays after logging in to email. Resolution: This issue happens to users who have previously accessed Outlook.com with that browser. The solution is to clear your browser cache and cookies, and restart the browser.
What is my email address?
The general format of your email address is: NDUS.Identifier@UND.edu. For example, if you use john.doe to access Campus Connection, Blackboard etc. your email address would be john.doe@UND.edu.
Is it possible to access my Office 365 account via POP3 or iMap?
Yes, Office 365 now supports POP3 Access and iMAP.
My email address is listed incorrectly in the UND Directory, Blackboard, or HRMS (Employee Self-Service), what do I do?
If your email address is listed incorrectly, contact UND Tech Support to correct the issue.
Can I change my student email address?
If you have had a name change and would like your email address to reflect that change, the first step is to change your name with the Registrar's Office. Once your name is changed in Campus Connection you may request that your NDUS.Identifier be changed by contacting UND Tech Support. Please note that the identifier change not only impacts your email address but also your Campus Connection, Blackboard, network authentication, and any service that uses your NDUS Identifier.
Can I change my email display name?
Your email display name can only be changed after you have officially changed your legal name with the Registrar's office and have requested an NDUS.Identifier change through UND Tech Support.
I have another email address. Can I forward all student email to that account?
Yes. While you may forward your UND email to another email account, having email lost because of forwarding does not absolve you from the responsibilities associated with communication sent to your official email address. The University is not responsible for handling of UND email by outside vendors or unofficial servers.
What happens when I leave UND?
Students will keep their email account for 18 months after their last class at UND.
