Coming Soon: Changes to UNCW’s Email Login Page

June, 2018


Whether you call it “Office 365 email,” “OWA” or simply “mail.uncw.edu,” soon the Web page where you enter your email login credentials will be branded with iconic UNCW imagery. 

Customizing this page helps ITS provide better security to the campus by eliminating the standard Microsoft image, which can be mimicked by attackers. It also enhances the user experience by providing helpful links and information, such as the TAC contact information and more.

Changes to the page will be similar to the design below. From time to time, ITS will refresh the image to keep the look current and also keep hackers from copying the picture being used. However, you can always expect the page to represent UNCW.  These changes will be implemented on July 13. 

This is an example of what the UNCW Email Login Page will look like.

In the future, this page will get more and more use as additional features within Office 365 are rolled out to campus and as more apps begin employing this method for authentication. So keep a look out for the changes, coming soon!
