To access your Oxford Nexus email account you need to sign in using your single sign on username and password.

Alternatively you can browse to the IT Services homepage and select 'Email Login' at the top of the page (you could even google “oxford nexus login”).

There are options to log in from a public computer or a shared computer. Please select as appropriate for your own security.

Once authenticated you will be presented with your personal mailbox.
