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 helpdesk@uwplatt.edu.  You may also visit the Help Desk on the first floor of the Karrmann Library.
