Faculty and staff at the University of New Brunswick now have full access to their office phone services when working remotely or on campus following the successful migration of UNB’s phone system to Microsoft Teams on Aug. 27.

UNB is the first Canadian university to move to a Voice-over-IP (VoIP) phone system run entirely through Teams, a Microsoft app known best for its video meeting, chat and file sharing features.

From anywhere in the world and from any computer or mobile device, UNB faculty and staff can use Teams to place and receive calls with their existing UNB phone number, attend virtual meetings, collaborate on documents and stay connected with each other.
