North Park Vikings Email
Student Vikings email accounts (@vikings.northpark.edu) are automatically created when you officially become a student for the first time (usually by paying your tuition deposit). Vikings email accounts are hosted by Microsoft as part of their Live.edu program. The new Vikings email account includes:
- 10 GB of email storage on an Exchange email server.
- Easy email access via a rich web based email client at https://outlook.com/vikings.northpark.edu
- Your Vikings email account is also a Microsoft Live ID which gives you access to Live SkyDrive (25GB of online storage), Office Live Workspace, and more.
- You may keep this email address for life.
You must change your North Park and Vikings password PRIOR to attempting to access your Vikings account for the first time. This will synchronize your North Park and Vikings passwords. You may do this at http://www.northpark.edu/account-management.
Your new Vikings email account is separate from your North Park network account. Your Vikings email account provides access to your email, and other Live.edu services. Your North Park network account username provides access to all other North Park services, including WebAdvisor, Moodle, Helpdesk, and NPYou.
If you wish to utilize a non-vikings account for your email, you will need to "pull" your email from your vikings account into your non-Vikings account. How this is done varies based on who is hosting your email. You may also "redirect" your vikings email to an external account. This is done from within the Outlook.com website via an inbox rule.
