Microsoft 365 apps and services are coming to UB, bringing new and better ways to collaborate with your fellow students, faculty and staff. Find out what’s changing for you, and when.
This project will provide UB’s students, faculty and staff with a unified suite of essential apps, including email (Exchange), cloud storage (OneDrive) and collaboration (Teams).
To find out more about this project, including a timeline for major changes, visit the UBIT website.
UBIT is working closely with your department’s support staff to ensure a smooth transition. Your department will have its own timetable for introducing new Microsoft 365 features, in order to ensure that proper preparations are made. Check with your departmental support staff to see when specific features will be available to you.
You will be notified in advance before any changes are made to your services, or any action is required from you.
The transition to Microsoft 365 will accomplish the following goals:
The transition to Microsoft 365 at UB is a large-scale project that will affect everyone at UB. It’s critical that you have a way to provide input and help steer the project.
The first of many opportunities to do so will happen in Spring 2021, when UBIT hosts a series of information sessions designed to provide updates on the project and allow UB faculty and staff to share their comments and concerns about the project.
We hope you’ll join us for one of our virtual Microsoft 365 information sessions, held throughout February and March 2021 via Zoom (click the links below to register):
