SharePoint Software Service


SharePoint Upgrade

Starting at the end of May 2022, SharePoint sites will be upgraded to Microsoft SharePoint 2019. The upgrade is expected to be fairly seamless as we are preserving the classic look and feel in this phase of the migration.

The UBC SharePoint Software as a Service (SaaS) is a web-based communication and collaboration platform. The SharePoint Service is hosted on an on-premise infrastructure managed by UBC IT.
