Productivity Platforms

UW offers two world-class, cloud-based productivity platforms that also include email services.

UW Office 365

UW Office 365 is the University of Washington’s implementation of Microsoft Office 365 Education, a collection of online email, productivity, and collaboration services. The key focus of the UW Office 365 service offering is to provide quick, easy, and user-centered collaboration processes.  UW Office 365 is particularly useful when much of your work will be done with a team.

UW G Suite (Google)

UW G Suite is similar to Google’s consumer apps, but free of advertising and with greater privacy protection.  UW G Suite includes Gmail, Drive, Calendar, and Sites.
