Nexus365 is available to University members and is the University’s instance of the cloud-based Microsoft Office 365 service. Centrally managed by IT Services, it provides email, calendaring and access to several other Office 365 applications including OneDrive for Business, Teams, Forms, Delve and Skype for Business.

If you have a Nexus365 email account, you will automatically have access to the other Nexus365 tools available within the University.
IT Services will monitor new apps being introduced by Microsoft as part of Office 365 and decide whether they should be made available as part of the Nexus365 service.
