Outlook Web Access (OWA) provides a way for Babson users to access our e-mail system from any computer with an Internet connection without having to configure software. OWA allows you to use all of the features of Microsoft Outlook, such as e-mail, contacts, calendar, tasks, and notes from an easy to use web page.

All you need to do to access OWA is open Internet Explorer and type https://www.office.com in the address field. Then sign in with your Babson username and password and you will be brought to your inbox.
