Microsoft Teams is a shared space for conversations, file storage and teamwork. Teams can contain members inside and outside the University.

What Teams offers

  • Have ongoing conversations organised by topic
  • Run online meetings that can be recorded for playback later
  • Store files for others to access and collaborate on files in real time 

Access Teams online from anywhere with any device: there's no need to use the VPN from off campus.
