To log into Office 365:

  • Go to https://liveac.algonuqincollege.com and enter your email address and password. This is the same for both staff and students.
  • Your email address is your <AC Network ID>@algonquinlive.com. For example, if your AC network username is smit0123, your email address is smit0123@algonuqinlive.com .
  • If you do not know your Network ID, go to What are my Algonquin College accounts?

What are the uses of Office 365 at Algonquin College?

  • Algonquin students' AlgonquinLive email accounts are hosted on the Microsoft Office 365 platform.
  • Algonquin staff email, calendar, and task scheduling are moving to the Office 365 platform in  August 2016, with the remaining services to follow at a later date.
Note: Because both staff and students use Office 365, when you look up an ITS Help article ensure it is for you.
