Skype for Business

Microsoft Skype for Business (previously called "Lync") is powerful way to instantly communicate with UTMB colleagues, UTMB students and other people around the world. With the click of a button you can open a text chat, make a voice or video call, or even start an online meeting. Skype for Business makes online communication more collaborative and engaging. And, you can use Skype for Business from nearly any computer or mobile device, on campus or anywhere in the world you have Internet access.

Skype for Business is available for Windows computers and Mac computers. Neither Skype for Business or Lync are available for Linux operating systems.

How do I get Skype for Business?
