As part of Modernising IT we are transforming our End-User experience. 

To allow this to happen The University of Manchester is moving staff and postgraduate research students to Microsoft Office 365 during 2020.

This means that our students and staff will be able to connect to their resources any time, anywhere and from any device.

Staff and students will be able to collaborate seamlessly inside and outside the University, enhancing everyone's productivity. 

What is Office 365?

Microsoft Office 365 includes the latest versions of:

  • Outlook
  • Word
  • Excel
  • PowerPoint
  • OneNote
  • SharePoint

You'll also have access to OneDrive for cloud-based file storage, and Teams for collaboration.

Over the coming months, we'll continue to add content to this website and to StaffNet news, including answers to your questions. Keep an eye out for further updates.
