Your Lincolnuni email is an Office365 account customised for Lincoln University students. Students receive a mailbox on the next business day following completion of their first registration. Office365 is a fully web based service, includes a 50 GB mailbox, calendar, contact management, as well as 1 TB ‘OneDrive’ (formerly known as SkyDrive). It is accessible from almost any web browser on or off campus, and is an official University communication channel with students.
This service is available to all registered students, both undergraduate and post graduate.
What is my email address?
Student mailbox addresses are in the form FirstName.LastNameNumber@lincolnuni.ac.nz, where number is present only if required to differentiate a mailbox from other pre-existing mailboxes. You can continue to use this email address while you are studying at Lincoln.
If you have finished enrolling and don't know what your email address is, login to a Lincoln campus computer using the username and password you where given.Once you have done this a System Notice will appear, under the word Welcome you should see your email address displayed.
Password for my email
When you change your Lincoln login password, this also updates your email password so they remain synchronised. For more info see Lincoln Password Info page

Please note your license to continue using Microsoft Office365, OneDrive for Business, and Lync rely on your enrolment status remaining current. When you graduate or discontinue study at Lincoln there are changes to your use of these services.
As a Lincoln student you will no longer have access to OneDrive for Business, locally installed Microsoft Office365 and the online version of Microsoft Office365, from one month after you cease to be registered, therefore you will need to copy/move your documents before this happens. Any files not removed will be deleted and cannot be recovered.
From 2015 your email account is also affected by your enrolment status, your email remains active for only 12 months after you cease to be registered. An email will be sent, to your LincolnUni address, prior to the deletion of this mailbox along with all mailbox contents.
