Welcome to Microsoft 365!

Microsoft 365, formerly known as Office 365, is a suite of cloud-based services and applications that can be accessed from anywhere or downloaded on multiple devices. It’s way more than Microsoft Office – Microsoft 365 is made of productivity tools dedicated to making communicating, collaborating, and sharing of ideas easier with classmates and colleagues.

Microsoft 365 combines applications like Excel and Word with services like Teams and OneDrive to enable you to create and share content from anywhere. Most applications are offered at no cost, while applications like Visio and Project Online must be requested and purchased.

Microsoft 365 services and applications are available to current or future university faculty and staff, and current students. You can find knowledge articles, and tools to help you learn how to use Microsoft 365 applications and services available to you throughout this site.
