Lync: Access

Microsoft Lync is available to both Mac and PC users. The setup and access instructions are slightly different depending on the type of computer you are using. Therefore, please select your Operating System below to access relevant information:

Online Access

If you are away from your computer, and don't have access to the Lync client (and you have an University Exchange e-mail address), you can still send instant messages via Outlook Web Access.

As long as the user is in your Lync contacts, you will be able to send an IM to them. The list of your Lync contacts can be found below the list of folders on the left side of the screen.
