Skype for Business

Skype for Business features instant messaging, chat rooms, voice and video calling between individuals or groups, file transfer, and desktop sharing.

Skype for Business integrates with other Microsoft Office products and is available to faculty and staff through campuswide Office 365 licensing.  With Skype for Business, users can host and participate in online meetings and communicate directly from Outlook and SharePoint. With the desktop application, real-time user presence shows user profile photos and the availability of contacts.

Faculty and staff can use Skype for Business with Office 2016, install the desktop application separately or download one of the mobile apps available from Microsoft. To log in, enter your full UARK email address and then provide your UARK password.
