Office 365 and Exchange Online



Leeds had made the exicting transition to Exchange Online and Office 365. Today, you can sign into the new Outlook Web App here >> (use your and university password). The Outlook Web App is an online, slimmed down, version of Outlook 2013. It has many improvements over Exchangeweb and will integrate with Outlook much better.

New features of this transition to Exchange Online include:

  • Email and shared calendaring with 50GB of storage space (up from 2GB)
  • Improved Outlook Web App (same functionality across all modern browsers)
  • Global address list including name, department and phone information for all faculty and staff
  • Email contact data for all people, resources and lists in Exchange Online environment
  • Accommodates multiple personal calendars, multiple group calendars, as well as resource calendars for scheduling of rooms, equipment, and other resources
  • Built-in virus scanner
  • Tight integration with Office 365 suite
  • Custom configuration abilitiies

Previously, the default for the max amount of space your mailbox could house was set to 2GB, now it's 50GB. This means no more spam emails from OIT saying your mailbox is full! 


LTS Recycles Batteries

For those of you who don't know, LTS collects batteries for recycling.  Feel free to drop your dead batteries off in KOBL 311, at your converience, and we will dispose of them properly.

From the Environmental Center website >> "CU-Boulder's Environmental Health & Safety department accepts sealed and non-leaking recharchageable batteries and batteries from pagers, cell phones, laptops, etc. from University operations.  Alkaline batteries from campus departments can now also be recycled through their program."

Updates to room reservations

As most of you know, we currently use EMS (Event Management System) as our room reservation system for Leeds rooms.  We will be migrating to a campus-wide version of EMS on July 10th, 2015. This initiative is coming down from the Chancellor as a result of the flooding in September 2013. At that time, it was discovered that there were 42 separate EMS databases across the Boulder campus, making it nearly impossible to identify where on campus people were gathered in the event of an emergency.

This project will benefit Leeds in many ways: We will now have real-time visibility of all room reservations in the building, including those that are centrally controlled. Although LTS will still provide support for EMS, it will be a common-good service from OIT, which will save Leeds money.

This new database will benefit the whole campus by improving communication while maintaining the same general look and feel. The new system will be completely customizable as to what room reach user group is allowed to view, request, and reserve. Rooms inside Koelbel  will not be visible to users who are not associated with Leeds. The only users will full visibility to all rooms on campus will be police and risk management.
