Student Email

KPU's IT department made changes in 2023 that affects student email, O365 and OneDrive accounts.
Essentially, student email addresses changed from “” to “”.

Why was the change made?

This change allows for greater connectivity between students and faculty at KPU.  Some features of O365 that were previously unavailable to students are now available. This allows students and faculty to collaborate within Office 365 apps like Microsoft Teams seamlessly.

The IT department began moving active student email accounts in batches in January 2023. All mailboxes were moved by May, 2023.

What do you need to know?

  • Your student email address changed from “” to “”. 
  • Everything in your current email account was moved to your new account.
  • Students were notified via email a week before the mailbox was being migrated
  • Once the migration was complete all your email was located in your new mailbox.
  • Email sent to your old email, “…” was auto-forward to the new email, “…” for 2 months after your mailbox was moved to the new server. 


The deadline for transferring your OneDrive files to your new account was June 16, 2023.
After the deadline, any files stored in your old OneDrive account ( are no longer accessible.  

Your Email and OneDrive is safer

  • Safe Links and Safe Attachments features is enabled on the new server.
  • Your email account has additional Information Security protections applied by the Microsoft 365 Safe Links and Safe Attachments features.
