This page describes how to link the Calendar in myCollege so that you can see it in Microsoft Outlook on either your PC or your Mac computer. If you are accessing your College email on an iOS or Android device, you will also see the myCollege Calendar in the Calendar app. This gives similar functionality to viewing the old College Calendar Public Folder.
There are two steps in this process. The first step is get the URL of the Calendar from myCollege. The second step is add the URL to Outlook in Office365.
The ILT Department is very happy to assist you with this process. It is a one-off activity which once done doesn't need to be repeated.
