Office 365 - Setting Time Zone the First Time

The first time you log into Office 365 and select Mail/Outlook, you will be directed to set the language and time zone for your account.

There are two "Central" zone options.  The correct time zone for all UW-Platteville campuses is (UTC-06:00) Central Time (US & Canada).  This time zone takes into account Daylight Saving Time.  Choosing Central America by mistake (or any other time zone) may cause issues and confusion when scheduling appointments with other UW-Platteville account holders.

OWA Initial Time Zone

If you have already set the time zone and need to change it, go to Office 365 - Changing Time Zone

If you have questions, please contact the ITS Help Desk at 608.342.1400 or  You may also visit the Help Desk on the first floor of the Karrmann Library.
