SharePoint Online

A new self-service portal is available that allows Institutional IT staff to create SharePoint Online sites for teams and collaboration groups that are eligible under the University's Microsoft EES Agreement. 

About the University's SharePoint Online service

This University's SharePoint Online service is available to Institutions participating in the University's Microsoft EES Agreement.

It is provided for site administrators and end users who are already familliar with SharePoint. UIS does not currently provide SharePoint Online training or support.

 

For teams and collaborative groups

You can now benefit from having a SharePoint Online site to help you easily share information and collaborate with others. 

 

For IT staff

Institutional Administrators now have delegated permissions to create (and delete) basic SharePoint Online websites for their users via an online portal.

 

For Institutions

For Institutions currently running their own SharePoint on-premise servers, using the new SharePoint Online service offers the potential to save costs and improve efficiency.

 

Would you be interested in professional SharePoint Online training, or consutancy services?

UIS is interested in gauging the interest in SharePoint Online training, both for site adminstrators and users. To help us assess this, so that we can consider providing training, please fill in the feedback form (requires authentication with a University of Cambridge Microsoft account):
