Collaboration Services Upgrading to Exchange 2013 This Fall

NUIT is about to begin upgrading the University Collaboration Services servers to Microsoft Exchange 2013. Outlook Web App users can look forward to an interface more like the desktop version of Outlook, as well as more calendar and email performance improvements once the work is completed in the fall.  

Faculty and staff using Outlook 2010, Outlook 2013, or Outlook 2011 for Mac will not need to do anything to prepare for the upgrade. However, after Exchange 2013 is enabled, Office 2007 will no longer be fully compatible with Northwestern Collaboration Services.

The good news is that Microsoft Office 2010 and 2013 are available for download (NetID required) onto University-owned machines at no additional cost! It is recommended that faculty and staff contact local technical support staff before downloading new software to their computer.
