Update on the university Microsoft Office 365 initiative

UITS is now in the design phase of the Microsoft Office 365 initiative. In the research phase, we received significant positive feedback with some questions and concerns from our UConn IT community.  Using this information, we produced a tentative design that was reviewed by the UITS IT Technical Partners governance body.  The architecture is now at a point where we have begun preliminary planning for an implementation.

UITS is searching for volunteers to test Office 365 and provide us with feedback about their experience.  Testers will be given a temporary account and the opportunity to get an early look at the service.  If you would like to participate, send us a message at with your name, netID, contact information, and position within the University.  Information about the service and the project is available at

We appreciate your patience and support as UITS continues to make progress on improving services for our faculty and staff.
