RWTH employees: Inviting students to MS Teams


Staff may need to hold appointments with students (who are not student assistants), or students may need to be added to a team in MS Teams.

Because tenants are separate for staff and students, a special invitation process is required.


Invite students to a team

Employees can invite students from the Students-Tenant as a guest using their Microsoft account name.

The student must provide this account name for this purpose.

1. to find out, students have to log in at with the M365 Login

  - click on the profile icon in the upper right corner
  - the account name is e.g. "".

2. the employee can then invite this account name.

        (the invitation process can take up to one minute)

3. in order for the team (or the other organization) to be displayed, the respective student must log in to Teams again. After that, the organization (the tenant) can be changed in a drop-down menu at the top right.
