Microsoft Teams is available to faculty & staff for early access.
- Support offerings will be limited,
- Self-help documentation will be under development,
- Changes to the service may occur without notice, and
- For individual file storage needs involving only faculty and staff, Microsoft OneDrive is the recommended solution. For collaborative file storage needs involving students (i.e., faculty to student), SFU Canvas is the recommended solution until further notice.
The official launch date of MS Teams will be announced in the future.

- Videoconferencing and screen sharing.
- Document collaboration.
- Team file sharing and storage.
- Virtual community spaces called Teams.

FACULTY AND STAFF
SFU will explore undergraduate student access to MS Teams for enhanced learning after the initial rollout to faculty, staff and graduate students.
There are no current plans to provide access to SFU alumni, retirees, emeritus and adjunct professors.
2. Access MS Teams
How do I install MS Teams on my Individual-use or university-managed device(s)?
To download Microsoft Teams on your individual-use device, visit Microsoft Team's download page for more information.
If you are an SFU faculty/staff and you hold a university-managed device, Microsoft Teams should be pre-installed on your device. Please contact the IT Service Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org or 778-782-8888 for any software inquiries/installations.
