Home Base Services
Home Base was created to meet the advanced support needs of university students. CaTS provides basic support services for free, but can now offer more in-depth support through Home Base. You'll find prices for these support offerings are much lower than going off campus. Home Base also offers software available for purchase to students, staff, and faculty members.

Current Issues with Office 365 Email
At this time, some users are unable to access email through the Outlook client or the Outlook Web App (OWA).

Microsoft is working on a resolution and CaTS will notify the University when a solution has been found. For questions, contact the CaTS Help Desk at (937) 775-4827, or email email@example.com.
