SharePoint is accessible from anywhere, and allows for collaboration and development of documents, Wikis, discussions, blogs and surveys. It is designed for situations in which work groups require regular access to shared resources, and need capabilities exceeding simple file sharing. Sign into SharePoint using your Login ( https://login.wvu.edu ) credentials.

If you need additional assistance with SharePoint that is unrelated to access or WVU policies, we suggest searching for "sharepoint" on the Office 365 website ( https://support.office.com ) or searching online.

When searching, be specific. For example, if you are trying to edit a document in SharePoint 2016, search for "edit a document in SharePoint 2016." If you cannot find the information you need, try adjusting the keywords you are using in your search.
