Wednesday, April 7, 2021 - 16:00

UBC Collaboration Suite (powered by Skype for Business) is retiring on May 31, 2021.

When Skype for Business is decommissioned at the end of May, eligible Skype for Business accounts will automatically be switched to MS Teams Only mode.

If you wish to get on MS Teams Only mode before May 31st, submit your request here:
