Registering and Login M365/MS Teams
This guide describes how to register and access Microsoft M365 for students and for employees. These are two different services.
Please note: Students cannot log in to MS Teams for employees and employees cannot log in to M365 for students (exception: you are a student and an employee at the same time).
Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, OneDrive, SharePoint,
Sway, Forms, Flow, PowerApps, MS Teams, Yammer
Note: The products are currently only available as webapp in the browser (except MS Teams or Yammer).
Exchange Online (Outlook) is not available. The IT Center operates its own e-mail service.
You will be redirected to the RWTH Single Sign On and can log in as usual (e.g.: RWTHonline).

If employees and students need to communicate with each other via MS Teams, you must invite the corresponding account as a guest in each case.
It is important to use the internal Microsoft account and not your own email address. How to find out the account can be read here:
This procedure also applies to invitations as a guest to external MS Teams servers (e.g.: business partners or other universities).
