ITS would like to offer a warm welcome to all incoming students, faculty and staff! We want to help get you up and running with the tools we have available. Here are some of the basic IT services used across campus:
Box – Unlimited cloud storage and collaboration tool. Available at box.weill.cornell.edu.
Zoom – Hosting for large-scale online meetings and webinars at weillcornell.zoom.us (hosting not available for students at this time).
Email & Calendar
Webmail – Access your official WCM email and calendar; includes unlimited storage. Available at o365.weill.cornell.edu.
File Transfer – Files larger than 25MB are too large to attach to an email. Transfer files up to 2GB using this secure service. Available at transfer.med.cornell.edu.
Encrypted Email - Ideal for sending sensitive or confidential data to a recipient with an email address that is not a part of the WCM network. The WCM Network includes emails ending in @med.cornell.edu, @nyp.org, @mskcc.org, @rockefeller.edu, @hss.edu, and @cornell.edu. If you need to send a sensitive email outside of this network (e.g., to approved third-party vendors) just type #encrypt in the subject line of your email.
Events Calendar – Discover and publicize events of interest to the WCM community. Submit events at events.med.cornell.edu, including grand rounds, conferences, open meetings, and social gatherings. Events submitted are reviewed for appropriateness and accuracy before posting. Also available via app on iOS devices.
