Then choose the option ‘Submit a Request’, found at the bottom right of the screen, in the ‘Other Services’ section.
How to Access SharePoint
Individuals with a faculty/staff NUnet account and those with sponsored accounts have access to SharePoint and may login using the same credentials as for Outlook email. Access to individual sites is given through the department, office or committee’s site administrator.
Logging on to a SharePoint Site
- Open your browser (Internet Explorer or Firefox are recommended).
- Type the address of your SharePoint site in the address bar (or click on the link given to you in an email). If you do not know the address, you may navigate through the NU SharePoint Homepage.
- If you are using a computer on NUnet, and have logged on, you will be automatically logged in to SharePoint.
- If you are not using a NUnet computer, you will be presented with a login dialog box. Use the same username/password you use to access Outlook email. When not on NUnet, you must put nunet\ before your username. For example, nunet\s.husky
SharePoint is a browser based application, so it can be used without installing software on your computer. Supported browsers for running SharePoint include Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari. Internet Explorer is the recommended browser; Firefox and Safari are supported with minor limitations.
