Microsoft 365 Apps
Common Features and Apps
When you sign in to the Microsoft 365 portal you will notice a number of apps that are accessible to you as a student. Depending on your course you may need to access a number of different apps, but the most common are Word, Powerpoint, Teams, and OneDrive. You can also access your college email via the Outlook app.
