About Skype for Business

Skype for Business

Skype for Business (previously known as Lync) is a Microsoft service, part of the Office 365.  It gives presence information, instant messaging and offers voice and video calling for those with webcams and microphones.   It is essentially a collaborative tool that supports teams and workgroups, but it can also be used to for webinars and scheduled on-line meetings.

Skype for Business is an optional tool which is free to use. It uses our University credentials, so there is no need to create additional accounts. Skype for Business can be installed on mobiles, PCs and Macs.
