Our help sheet will guide you through it, but if you still need help you can email us at:

MS Teams


Microsoft Teams is a chat-based collaboration platform complete with document sharing, online meetings, and many more extremely useful features for communications.

Being safe in MS Teams

Before you use MS Teams, you need to be aware of your responsibilities for keeping LSBU secure, looking after your data and ensuring that you are you safe. Always be wary of who you choose to share data with, especially using a collaborative tool which makes it easier for team and cross-team working. Think - is your document confidential or in other ways sensitive? Is it safe to be shared in a Team or in a post?

Please take a moment to read through the ICT Security Policy for students below.

Accessing MS Teams

  1. Go to:   
  2. When prompted, please enter your LSBU email address and LSBU password
  3. Click on the icon for MS Teams

You can find the quick guide for using MS Teams here:

Please note: You can only use the desktop version - mentioned in the quick guide - if you download it to your own PC or device.

Adobe Creative Cloud

Accessing Adobe Creative Cloud Off Campus

It is now possible for students and staff to access Adobe Creative Cloud Apps off campus.

A user guide can be found by clicking here.

This should work without any issues for anyone who does not already have Adobe products installed on their machines.

Simply log into Adobe CC and install the packages that you require.

If you do have older versions of Adobe CC and Adobe software already, then you should login to your Adobe account and try updating CC.

If you find that CC fails to update, try uninstalling and then re-installing Adobe CC.

Once Adobe Creative Cloud is updated you will be able to update existing software or install new Adobe products.
