Do you want to access QUB email, calendar and contacts on your mobile device?  We recommend that you connect to your account using Exchange (Apple) or Exchange ActiveSync (Android). The following settings should work for the majority of mobile devices.

Settings for staff email accounts which have migrated 

  • Student Email Settings
    Email Address
    Domain   leave blank
    Password   enter your QUB password

    Postgraduate Students: Please be aware that some long-standing Postgraduate students, whose mailboxes may not be on the cloud, will need to use the staff settings 

  • Staff Email Settings
    Email Address
    Domain   ads
    Username*   Staff Number
    Password   enter your QUB password

    *Please Note: Some devices group Domain and Username together and the entry will be in the form ads\1234567

If you experience any difficulties with your particular device then please refer to Outlook Help or bring your device to the IT Service Desk in the McClay Library.

By using a POP or IMAP connection, you will only be able to use email.
