Office 365 (Cloud based)

Office 365 is a Microsoft hosted messaging solution that delivers the capabilities of Microsoft Outlook as a cloud-based service. This means your email services and data will be located in data centers owned and managed by Microsoft. It gives users a rich and familiar access to email, calendar and contacts allowing access by PC’s, Mac, the web and mobile devices. By utilizing this service, it removes the University’s operational burden for an on-premises hosted email service. In addition, the mailbox size limit has been increased to 50 GB. Users may also access their email through a web browser using Outlook Web App or from a variety of mobile devices. Additionally, this service includes; secure access, security audits, service continuity, intrusion monitoring and high availability.
