SharePoint is a collaboration tool that can help you organise and share your data in a single location.

It also gives you direct control over who has access to your site and what level of access that they have.

Any user with a valid UCC Office 365 account can set up a SharePoint site by clicking the SharePoint App on the Office 365 portal (  

With SharePoint, you can:

  • Build internal sites and create pages, document libraries and lists.
  • Show important visuals, news and updates with a team or communication site.
  • Sync and store your files in the cloud so anyone can securely work with you.
  • Share content with UCC colleagues and external users*

Each SharePoint site has a storage quota of 25000GB.
