Getting Started with Office365

I’m a new student. What is my e-mail address?

Students at Baruch will have a standard e-mail account, in the following format:

This account, also known as a BaruchMail account, is a Microsoft Office365-powered account for student use. Provided there are no name conflicts, your e-mail ID should remain the same.

The naming convention for e-mail accounts is firstname.lastname. For example, if there is more than one “John Smith” on your campus, one person’s ID will be “John.Smith” and the second “John.Smith1,” and so on.

Your default password is your date of birth, in this format:

yyMmmdd of your DOB + Last 4 of SSN

-The year (yy) are the last two numbers of your birth year.
-The month (Mmm) are the first three letters of your birth month, with the first letter capitalized.
-The day (dd) are two numbers of your birth date.

For example, if you were born on January 1st, 1990 and your SSN was XXX-XX-1234, your default password would be:
