SharePoint Software Service

Overview

UBC's SharePoint software service is a web-based communication and collaboration platform commonly used for content management, collaboration, and streamlined communications. Departments, faculties or project teams, are able to design and build their own UBC branded intranet or team site, which can be used by both internal or external colleagues. The SharePoint Service is centrally managed and supported by UBC IT and is based on Microsoft's 2013 Enterprise software.
