Overview: SharePoint

SharePoint Online is a web-based collaborative platform that can be used for storing and sharing content securely, create secure web pages and intranets, or collaborate with external users. SharePoint Online is cloud based and is available to members of the University as part of the Nexus365 suite of applications.

Meeting solution in SharePoint Online

There are two versions of a meeting solution in SharePoint Online:

  • Basic Meeting Site, which provides the functionality for a meeting with documents
  • Committee Meeting Site, which provides functionality for meetings, with documentation and security levels to manage who can access what content

Further details are available on our Meeting Solution for SharePoint Online page. 

Getting started with SharePoint Online

We suggest reading the following before requesting new sites:


Get SharePoint Online


SharePoint Online is provided as 'out-of-the-box' from Microsoft, so additional advice can be found on Microsoft and other external support sites.

All requests for additional Microsoft or third party apps will be automatically declined. Please do not request additional apps through the App Catalog Site, or through app requests within your own SPO sites.
