Teams Logo
Teams Calls

Campus telephones were moved to Microsoft Teams. The phone service through Teams (named "Teams Calls") provides a modern telephone experience that offers enhanced usability, robust accessibility, and device flexibility.  It has the added benefit of reduced telecommunications costs and leverages the Teams platform, which has already emerged as a central hub for collaboration at William & Mary.

Papercut Logo

Moving to PaperCut enables students to map to a single print queue instead of one for each lab printer. This drastically simplifies the setup and allows students to swipe their Tribe Card at any of our print release stations on campus to print their print job. It also allows students to pay using their W&M Express funds, rather than getting billed later.

Banner 9

Banner 9 Self-Service apps deliver new functionality to the W&M community.  While there is no retirement date set for Banner 8 Self-Service, W&M IT is actively working with functional offices that have an interest in testing and going live with Banner 9 Self-Service apps.
