Unified Communications (UC) at the University of Illinois
UC @ Illinois is a major campus-wide technological initiative to replace telephone, email, and calendaring services for faculty and staff. The single biggest change for campus with UC @ Illinois is that voice services are no longer handled (for the most part) by separate phone lines but over the Internet (Voice over IP, or "VoIP"). Your computer serves as your phone.

All graduate students (not on appointment) will also be a part of UC @ Illinois. Besides receiving a Microsoft Exchange 2010 account (email and calendaring), graduate students can use Microsoft Lync to communicate with a Lync to Lync account. We offer a number of workshops on using Microsoft Lync with this type of account..
