Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams is a platform that allows users to communicate and collaborate in one place. Teams is available to all UHV faculty, staff, and enrolled students through Office365.

Teams can be utilized through a web-browser or by installing it on your device.

If you would like a Microsoft Team created for your academic class, department, or student organization, please fill out the Microsoft Office 365 Team Request Form.

Teams is approved for Level 1 data (UHS SAM 07.A.08).


If you have a disability or questions related to accessibility with any Microsoft Office 365 product, please contact the Microsoft Disability Answer Desk for technical assistance. The Microsoft Disability Answer Desk support team is trained in using many popular assistive technologies and can offer assistance in English, Spanish, French and even American Sign Language.
