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.
