Login page for office365.ucdavis.edu gets a new look on Aug. 6

If you use Office 365 for your UC Davis email and related services, and access your account via office365.ucdavis.edu, you'll see a different login page starting Aug. 6.

At 8 p.m. that Thursday, administrators will install a new login page that looks better on smartphones than the current page does. Campus administrators are also upgrading servers that support the service.

Using office365.ucdavis.edu (365.ucdavis.edu also works) allows people to check their email accounts and other Office 365 tools, such as OneDrive and SharePoint, via a web browser without having to fire up their Office 365 software.

The new login page has both a large version (for computers) and a small version (for smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices). This page shows the new and old designs. The most visual change is the addition of a photo of a campus scene to the large version. You'll sign into the service the same way you do now.
