Q: What is Microsoft 365 and how is it relevant to Seattle University's students and alumni?
A: Microsoft Office 365 is a secure, cloud-based service portal that hosts web versions of popular Microsoft applications, such as Exchange e-mail, Word and Excel. Seattle University has built a new custom Office 365 environment to host all SU student e-mail accounts, says Matt Byers, systems administrator in the Office of Information Technology. "Students and alumni will benefit from 50 GB e-mail quotas and lifetime access to their SU e-mail account," he says. "Active students (students enrolled in classes) will also have access to web-based versions of Word, Excel and PowerPoint, and online data storage--all for free!"
Alumni accounts are already migrating to Office 365, and active students will begin migrating later this quarter.
