Student Email and Office365 sign-in changing soon
Information Technology is simplifying UofL’s email system and bringing everyone together @louisville.edu. During the semester winter break (between Dec.18 to 22), IT will be redirecting all student email accounts. Students will no longer use @cardmail.louisville.edu for their Office365 account and Outlook (whether installed on a device or access via the web application) all sign-ins to student accounts will change. However, if a winter session student, log-ins will stay @cardmail.louisville.edu for Office365 accounts until after Jan. 6 and then it will be userID@louisville.edu for UofL email and Office365.

Green Tip: Put more green in your holidays
The holidays are fun, but can be hard on the budget and the planet. Save money, resources and the environment this season with a few simple steps. Don’t make your office or lab work when you leave for the holidays: turn down thermostats, power down computers and equipment and unplug chargers, printers and appliances. Serve local, seasonal foods and less meat. Give unique, local gifts: Shop the UofL Farmers Market Holiday Bazaar today, 12-3 p.m. in the Red Barn, or the UofL Ceramics Sale Friday and Saturday.
