Office 365 – coming soon

The Office 365 pilot has started. Over 250 ‘early adopters’ from across the university are having their accounts moved to Office 365 by 22 January. Some of the benefits include:

  • Increased mailbox size (up to 50GB) and more Cloud storage for documents
  • Access to emails remotely without having to log in to webmail
  • Instant messaging and Lync video conferencing
  • Access to documents from mobile devices with OneDrive
  • Up to five copies of the Microsoft suite so you can use the applications on your different devices

All staff will be migrated to Office 365 between 2 March and 28 August, with student migration scheduled for 10 August – 7 October. The pilot will provide valuable insights that can be applied to the main Office 365 deployment.

University of London

The University of London is a collegiate research university located in London, England, consisting of 18 constituent colleges, nine research institutes and a number of central bodies.

The university is the largest university by number of full-time students in the United Kingdom, with 161,270 campus-based students and over 50,000 distance learning students in the University of London International Programmes. The university was established by royal charter in 1836, as a degree-awarding examination board for students holding certificates from University College London (UCL) (previously called London University) and King’s College London and “other such other Institutions, corporate or unincorporated, as shall be established for the purpose of Education, whether within the Metropolis or elsewhere within our United Kingdom”. The university moved to a federal structure in 1900.
