Studying off campus with Microsoft Teams

1 April 2020

As so many of us are now studying and working from home, Microsoft Teams has never been more useful and important.

It acts as a digital hub bringing conversations, content, collaboration, and apps together in one place. You can ‘chat’ with others, create and share files, check your Outlook calendar, and hold online meetings all within the same application.

How to access Teams

  • Log into Office 365 via office.com with your University email address and password.
  • Choose Teams from the Office 365 homepage or click on the ‘waffle’icon.

For a quick overview of Teams take a look at our guide MS Teams – key features.

If you can’t find the class you need, you can book an appointment for one-to-one support with our trainers.

There are lots of useful guides and tutorials online too:

Okay, there really aren’t any elves. You still have to do the work yourself. But we can help you get off to a great start – and help you along the way!
