This means you will have access to your email, calendars, contacts, and Office 365 applications, such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. You can continue to access your email in the same way as when you were a student, via your smartphone/tablet, the Outlook desktop app, or outlook.davidson.edu.

After the date listed for your class, you will no longer have access to your Davidson College email, Office 365 applications, or any college resources associated with your account. It is important that all applications associated with your Davidson College email address be updated with a personal email address prior to this date to avoid loss of access.
