Change in Using Microsoft 365 Service

Under the University’s subscription to Microsoft Enrollment for Education Solutions, staff and students can use Microsoft 365 (M365) (previously called Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus) on up to 5 personal machines (PC or Mac) and Office apps on up to 5 tablets (including Android, iPad, and Windows tablets) and 5 phones per user without additional cost during the subscription period.

To improve user experience, we are scheduling to update the M365 accounts of students who are using PortalUID@hkumssa.onmicrosoft.com to login the M365 service. After this update is done, their login credentials will be standardized to HKU Portal UID (PortalUID@connect.hku.hk) and PIN which can simplify the login procedure.

This account update will be carried out in batches from end of June to end of August 2020.  Email will be sent to the affected students to notify them the scheduled date for the account update and other associated details.
