Global Address List now available through Outlook

In late 2016, a new Global Address List in Microsoft Outlook was created to create a shared directory across the UNC School of Medicine and UNC Health Care. We encourage everyone to use the directory in Outlook to find the best address to use when sending an email or a meeting invite.

In late 2016, a new Global Address List in Microsoft Outlook was created to create a shared directory across the UNC School of Medicine and UNC Health Care. Since then, more than 85% of employees with both an '@med.unc.edu' and an '@unchealth.unc.edu' account have selected a primary account to ensure that their  information is available to everyone in Outlook. We encourage everyone to use the directory in Outlook to find the best address to use when sending an email or a meeting invite. Addresses from your favorites or from your local contacts may not be updated.

Through Outlook, you can now find email addresses and schedule meetings with colleagues from the following UNC Health Care entities:

  • Caldwell Memorial Hospital
  • Chatham Hospital
  • High Point Regional
  • Johnston Health
  • Pardee Hospital
  • UNC Medical Center
  • UNC Physicians Network
  • UNC REX Healthcare
  • UNC School of Medicine

Colleagues at Nash Health Care, UNC Lenoir Health Care, and Wayne Health will begin using '@unchealth.unc.edu' email addresses at an undetermined time in the future. At that point they will also be added to the Global Address List.

Many thanks to the team in UNC Health Care's Information Services Division, the School of Medicine's Office of Information Systems, and UNC-Chapel Hill's Information Technology Services for their partnership to make the Global Address List in Outlook a reality.

If you have both a School of Medicine and UNC Health Care email address and have not yet selected a primary account, use the following steps to do so:

  • Visit https://selfservice.unc.edu   
  • Login with your UNC-Chapel Hill ID (ONYEN). If you do not remember your ONYEN password or need help finding your ONYEN, call the UNC-Chapel Hill Help Desk at 919-962-4357.
  • Select “Email Sign-Up.”
  • Choose your primary email account.
