Technology Resources

Microsoft Office Suite

The campus uses MS products extensively in the classroom. Students are often asked to create presentations, work with spreadsheets collecting and organizing data, and (of course) writing papers. While you are always permitted to do these with other tools UB IT supports a specific set of tools, including Microsoft. It's always a good idea to become familiar with and use those tools in case you have problems that need technical help to resolve. Your instructors will have limited knowledge on how to troubleshoot technology related issues.
