Office 365 SharePoint

SharePoint Online (SPO) is a document and information management system that is part of the Office 365 suite. You can use it to create areas for storing and sharing information called sites.

SPO sites can be used to collaborate or share documents, store information, create and distribute news as well as supporting a wide variety of other activities.

SPO is commonly accessed via your web browser, though you can also access files within SPO using newer versions of Office applications (Word, Excel etc), Teams and the OneDrive software for Windows and Mac.

The University is replacing our existing SharePoint service ( and with Office 365. See the migration help centre for more details: Office 365 migration centre.
