More about Office 365
Seton Hall University has partnered with Microsoft to offer Microsoft Office 365 to students, faculty and employees. Office 365's productivity suite enables members of the University community to share documents, access popular Microsoft software applications online and work collaboratively. Starting in summer 2014, the University began migrating all faculty and employee e-mail to the Office365 environment in the cloud. Students were already migrated to Office 365 in 2013.

You will be able to utilize these services as long as you are an active member of the Seton Hall community (faculty, staff or student).
How do I get started?
Once you click on the Office 365 icon in your login dashboard, Office 365 will open up by default to your email.
OneDrive for Business
OneDrive for Business, formerly SkyDrive Pro, provides users with 1TB of cloud storage. Please note that OneDrive for Business (enterprise software) is not the same as the OneDrive service Microsoft offers to individuals. For additional information on the differences, see How is OneDrive for Business different from OneDrive.
Office Online (Office Web Apps)
Use OneDrive to store, sync and share your work. All documents are private by default, unless you share them. The icons within OneDrive allow you to create new files (or folders) right within OneDrive.
Skype for Business (formerly known as Lync)
Microsoft's instant message and video conferencing product, formerly known as Lync, enables you to communicate with members of the Seton Hall community as well as set up online meetings. Read more about the new look and features »
