As part of our ongoing process to improve efficiency, University Technology Services (UTS) has started implementing Office 365 across the university system. Over the next few months, all employee email, calendar and contacts will be migrated to the Microsoft Office 365 cloud. The migration will combine our student, faculty, and staff emails in a single system that will allow for better collaboration, common address books, and a more secure and productive environment. This move will enable you to access your email from the web, your Outlook client, and mobile devices. Once migration is completed, you will have larger mailbox sizes (50 GB) and better integration with many of the services offered in Office 365.
NOTE: This migration does not affect campuses or departments that are running a separate email system (USC Aiken, USC Upstate, School of Medicine, or Moore School of Business). Also, campus-specific email address (ex. - @usca.edu, @uscb.edu) will not change.
The migration is scheduled to begin in mid-May and will continue until all mailboxes are migrated. Once UTS completes testing and formalizes the migration schedule, you will receive detailed information on what to expect and any actions you need to take. In addition, UTS in in the process of creating a website and training tools that will provide more detailed information.
If you have questions or concerns, please contact the UTS Service Desk at (803) 777-1800 between the hours of 8 a.m.-6 p.m., Monday through Friday.
