If accessing OWA from a Campus Managed Desktop PC, you will not need to log in.  Single-Sign-On will be activated from you having already logged on to the PC. If you are using your own PC/laptop on campus or from off-campus you will be presented with a login box.

Enter your University userID (example: b1234567) and password to log on.

When you first log on you will be asked what language and time zone you wish.  If you are going to be studying in Newcastle, please select:
