About Outlook

In March 2014, HSD moved to a Microsoft Outlook email system. Outlook can be used to send and receive e-mail messages, schedule meetings, manage contacts and tasks, and much more.

Desktop, Web, and Mobile

There are three ways to log in to your Outlook account:

  • Outlook via the Web. Outlook Web App (OWA) is the web-based version of Outlook. For the best OWA experience, you’ll want to run the most recent web browser your machine can handle. To log in using OWA, go to outlook.luc.edu.
  • Outlook on Your Desktop. Most HSD users have access to Outlook's full-featured desktop client (version 2013 or 2010). To learn more, go to the Outlook on Your Desktop page.
  • Outlook on Your Mobile Device. Outlook provides excellent support for mobile devices. Step-by-step set-up instructions are available on the Reconnecting Your Mobile Devices page.
