Please follow the instructions below to setup your Office 365 account on your iOS or Android device. As of July 14th, 2017, it is recommended that email be setup using the MaaS360 set of instructions. The MaaS360 setup will be required as of October 1st, 2017. After that, all connections setup using the original method (i.e. ActiveSync) will stop working. This page will be updated with more information as in the near future.

VCU Health has started sending out communication about the new MaaS360 setup. Their documentaiton is available at http://portal.vcuhs.mcvh-vcu.edu/mobilityservices/, but is only accessible from certain VCU networks and requires a login with a VCU Health Windows account. All relevant content for SOM employees is being migrated to this page.
