This article covers how students can set up the Outlook app on their Apple iOS device (e.g. iPad, iPhone) with their campus Office 365 email.
Please note that the Mail (iOS) and Gmail (Android) apps are not currently supported as there are security concerns with those apps. You may experience issues with your campus email if you choose to use those apps. For more information, please view this Microsoft community post on Improving Security - Together.
