Email Account


All UH students, faculty and staff receive an Email Alias.

Current students, faculty and staff also receive an Exchange email account. The Exchange mail server can be accessed via Outlook, which provides a single location for organizing and managing day-to-day information, from email and calendars to contacts and task lists.

The email can also be accessed using a web browser, such as Internet Explorer, Chrome, Safari and Firefox.


To access your Exchange email online, login into your Microsoft 365 account: 

  • Log into AccessUH , click the Microsoft 365 icon and follow the link
  • Log into Microsoft 365 
  • Enter your UserID:  ex:
  • Enter your CougarNet password

If you are a current student, faculty or staff, and you do not have an exchange account, you may request one.
