The administrative quarantine is accessed from the Office 365 Exchange Admin Center > Protection > Quarantine. Here you will see all the quarantined items for all users in the org.

The administrative quarantine is always available to EOP admins. The end user quarantine must be enabled and configured by the admin from Office 365 Exchange Admin Center > Protection > Content Filter, then click the Configure end-user spam notifications link on the right.
When enabled, end-users will receive an email from EOP listing all the new messages held in quarantine since the last notification.
The URL to the end-user quarantine is https://admin.protection.outlook.com/quarantine. In a hybrid scenario, even users without Office 365 licenses can access the end-user quarantine.
That's all pretty cool, but wouldn't it be nice to access the quarantine directly from Outlook? Here's how you configure it:
- Open Outlook as the end-user.
- Right-click the user mailbox and select New Folder.
- Name the folder Quarantine or * Quarantine to have it placed higher in the folder list.
- Right-click the new folder and select Properties.
- Click the Home Page tab.
- Enter https://admin.protection.outlook.com/quarantine in the Address field and then click the checkbox for Show home page by default for this folder. Click OK.
- You will then see the sign on page for EOP within Outlook. After you sign in you can access your end-user archive.

Unfortunately you can't view the end-user quarantine using this method from OWA, but I have a work-around.
- Send yourself an email with the subject of Quarantine and the link to https://admin.protection.outlook.com/quarantine in the body of the message.
- Drag the message from your Inbox to the Quarantine folder you created.
