Under UMass Lowell’s Microsoft Office 365, MS Teams is available to all faculty/staff access.
Please contact UMass Lowell TechServices to request a new team be created.
Please use the tabs and links below for further instructions on how to use Microsoft Teams.
Microsoft Teams is an intuitive collaboration and communication platform that allows groups to work together seamlessly. These can be entire departments or cross-functional teams collaborating on tasks, projects, or committees. Microsoft developed Teams as its premier collaboration tool and it is the next natural extension of UMass Lowell’s investment in Microsoft’s cloud-based productivity tools. Teams is included in our system-wide Microsoft 365 agreement and provides seamless integration with all Microsoft products.
The shift to Microsoft Teams will be a significant evolution in how we communicate. Email will remain an essential tool, and Teams offers a way to shift from static email to “living” threads of information. This encourages discussions, promotes collaboration, and allows more focused attention to specific topics.
All faculty, staff, and students can log into Teams from a computer (Windows, Mac, and Linux) or from a smartphone (Android and iOS) using their standard UMass Lowell credentials.
If you do not have the Teams client installed, you can download Microsoft Teams.
You can also access most of the Teams features from a web browser.
