Office 365


Computing and Communications (C&C) has evaluated the efficacy of deploying cloud based email, calendaring, and various accompanying collaboration tools. Migrating our email services to the cloud allows UCR the ability to maintain and improve upon our existing enterprise email and collaboration tool offerings, without requiring us to invest heavily in upgrading our infrastructure to meet our campus' growing needs. 

Features and Benefits

  • Cost Savings: Cloud infrastructure allows us to leverage a robust infrastructure, without incurring additional costs to upgrade and support our existing on premise infrastructure needs.
  • Improves Collaboration: Office 365 for staff provides robust document sharing and editing capabilities allowing colleagues to work together seamlessly within Office applications
  •  Branding: Microsoft allows branding for their Office 365 portal, which allows UCR to maintain our branding presence.
  • No Advertising: Advertising will not disrupt the user experience with Office 365, as Microsoft does not display advertising to users of their cloud email services.
  • Privacy & Confidentiality: Provisions for ensuring confidentiality, privacy, and security of UCR e-mail and documents are provided.  There is no data mining of UCR data conducted by Microsoft. 
  • Increased storage: Your mailbox will now have 50 GB of storage, in addition, your account will have unlimited online Archive storage.
  • Office 2016 included: You can download and install Office 2016 on up to 5 computers and up to 5 mobile devices
  • Cloud Data Storage: 1TB of OneDrive storage included with your account
  • Mobility: Access from anywhere and work across multiple devices
