Adding a Calendar to Outlook/OWA

These instructions are for adding another NetID account’s calendar to your desktop Outlook or Outlook for the Web (OWA). If you require additional access to another person’s calendar or you are using a macOS computer, the owner of that calendar may need to grant you Delegate Access – please see our dedicated guide on Delegate Access.

Click here for instructions on viewing a Shared Mailbox – a multi-user mailbox with a common calendar, typically tied to a Departmental Account.

These instructions are for viewing Primary Calendars

Secondary calendars must be re-shared by the calendar owners to be re-added, and are generally not recommended for collaboration. Consider using a Departmental Account with a Shared Mailbox instead.
