Skype for Business


Microsoft 'Skype for Business' (previously known as Lync) is a communication tool that allows you to send and receive instant messages with colleagues, make and receive audio & video calls (additional equipment required for video and audio elements) and enables others to see your presence (e.g. Busy, in a meeting or if you are available). 

Additionally, you can interactively collaborate on documents, show presentations and schedule online meetings with internal and external parties. Skype for Business is closely linked to Microsoft Exchange (Outlook) calendaring to show your availability when scheduling meetings.  

Skype for Business is available to staff and students.
