How can I get Skype for Business?

If you already have the Office Suite installed on your computer you should have Skype for Business installed. You'll simply need to open it and log in with your EWU email.

If you do not have Office installed or you need a more updated version, contact the help desk at (509)359-2247 or to get assistance with your free installation of Office.

Please note that a camera and microphone are required to use Skype for Business. Some computers will have them built-in or attached, but if you do not have a camera or microphone you can contact the EWU Help Desk and they will assist your department in purchasing any necessary items.

*On computers running Mac, Skype for Business is called Lync, but it includes the same features.
