Previous Office 365 University Account through Wharton?

If you were an early adopter of the Office 365 University software, you may have used your Wharton email address to sign up for and download Office365 University before May of 2015. Because Wharton is participating in the new University-wide initiative to launch a campus version of O365 University, existing accounts created with Wharton addresses have been renamed. User logins that were created before May 2015 are now accessible as follows:

  • Old Login credential: username@wharton.upenn.edu
  • New Login credential: username@whartonupenn.onmicrosoft.com .

The account password remains the same.
