IMPORTANT: We are currently in the process of moving the University’s centrally managed (Nexus) email and calendaring service to the cloud-based, Microsoft Office 365 service (Nexus365). If your account has been migrated you should now use the Nexus365 support pages where you will find help and advice on using the new service.


What is Nexus?

Nexus is the University 'groupware solution' which provides a range of integrated services such as email, calendars, contacts, task management and a suite of collaboration tools using SharePoint.

The Nexus Service can even be used to manage and book local resources!
