Microsoft Office 365 at CCU
Office 365 is a cloud-based service that provides a single platform for Coastal Carolina University email, and for students, faculty and staff to access the latest versions of Microsoft Office 2016 (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote) for Windows and OS X, and to get cloud-based mobile apps to access and edit files online including PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone and Android.
The primary and initial phase of the rollout of Office 365 has been the email upgrade – for students, faculty, staff and alumni – to Exchange Online. The transition of email was complete in June 2017. All official university communications are now sent and received through Office 365. Select your user group to learn more.
