Microsoft Teams Available for Use

We are pleased to announce that Microsoft Teams (MS Teams) is now available for use by staff and students. 

MS Teams, which is a part of the Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus (O365) service, is a software tool which includes video chat and other collaboration functions. 

To sign in MS Teams, simply go to https://products.office.com/en-us/microsoft-teams/group-chat-software and login with your HKU Portal UID (PortalUID@hku.hk for staff and PortalUID@connect.hku.hk for students) and PIN.

To join MS Teams meetings, users don’t need to login MS Teams (i.e. the steps described above).  Simply go to the meeting invite, select “Join Microsoft Teams Meeting” and choose the option “Join on the web instead”.

Please refer to our User Guide for more information on the use of MS Teams.  

In case you have any questions on the above, please feel free to contact our Service Desk at ithelp@hku.hk or 3917 0123.
