15 Jul 2019

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 2019 and 2020.

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

Office 365 includes newer versions of the applications you work with regularly, such as Outlook (including desktop and web app), Word, Excel and PowerPoint, with the addition of Teams for collaborative working, and OneDrive for cloud storage.

Over the next few weeks, we’ll start to invite colleagues to sign up as an 'early adopter', in which we’ll get you set up on Office 365 and ask for regular feedback. We will also be in touch shortly if you’ve previously expressed an interest. Keep an eye on StaffNet for more information.

More detailed information can be found on our Office 365 web pages:
