Western New England University uses Microsoft Exchange server to handle email, calendaring, and contacts. Here's what you need to know:

You have a choice

By default your email address will be firstname.lastname@wne.edu; however there are occasionally exceptions to this rule due to duplicate names.

Everyone also has the option to select between several variations. The selection form can be found here.


Microsoft Outlook is the email software installed on your office computer by Office of Information Technology staff, who will also configure it to connect to the University's Exchange server. In addition to handling email, Outlook also includes a calendar, task manager, contact manager, and notes. Outlook is generally used only by employees with an office on campus. Outlook is widely used by businesses and higher education, and so you'll find lots of helpful information on the web.


OWA stands for Outlook Web App, and it's how students access their email, calendar, and contacts on the Exchange server. Employees can also use OWA to access their email when away from the Outlook software installed on their office computers. Login at https://owa.wne.edu with your Western New England University UserID/Username and password combination.


Follow these SPAM Inbox Rule instructions to specify how you want Exchange to deal with incoming messages.

Mobile devices

Students and employees can also access their University email and calendars from an IOS Apple, or Android phone or tablet. You can either use the email program that comes with your device, or you might prefer the  Outlook App for Apple or the Outlook App for Android.
