Microsoft 365 for Students

Microsoft for Students

Microsoft 365 is a cloud-based service that provides a single platform for Coastal Carolina University email and online productivity applications. Students, faculty, and staff also access the latest versions of Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote) for Windows and OS X, and get cloud-based mobile apps to access and edit files online including PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone, and Android. All CCU users are required to set up and use Multi-Factor Authentication security on their CCU account. 

Access Microsoft 365 Outlook email by logging into https://login.microsoftonline.com/ using your full CCU email address (username@coastal.edu) and your password, then click on the Outlook icon to access your Outlook email.
