Office 365 Overview

Office 365 Logo

Office 365 is a cloud-based service that is designed to meet your email, calendar, and collaboration needs, along with several other applications and services available to you as a member of Wright State.

Note: CaTS is the service owner for Microsoft Office 365, however applications and services reside on Microsoft network servers. Frequent additions and changes to these applications and services are rolled out by Microsoft, and may not appear at the same time for all University members due to the time it takes for cloud-based changes to appear in individual accounts. For an overview of when changes will be made, visit the Office 365 Roadmap.
