Microsoft Office 365 is a cloud-based suite of solutions that includes Exchange Online as the email and calendaring environment, as well as collaborative office applications such as Office Web Apps, SharePoint, and Lync Online.
Only CULoginName @colorado.edu will work for accessing Office 365 applications, not the common preferred email address format of first.last @colorado.edu (as shown below).
All faculty, staff, and students (alumni are currently excluded) receive the following applications during the initial implementation of Office 365 on the CU-Boulder campus:
Collaborate with Word, Powerpoint, Excel, OneNote online
Online file storage (unlimited capacity)
Email, shared calendars and contacts, and tasks.
Instant messaging, online meetings, voice and video conferencing, and screen sharing
Web content creation and document management
The Exchange Online email and calendaring application (replacing the Exchange 2007 service) is being rolled out department by department during the spring 2015 semester to assure the migration to Exchange Online is as seamless as possible. Visit the Exchange Online page to learn more about this migration.
