About UM Intranet

UM Intranet serves as your portal to conveniently and quickly access faculty and staff resources and materials needed for your career, life and work at UM.

Accessible only to those with a @umanitoba.ca email address (faculty, staff, nil appointments and affiliated partner employees), UM Intranet is hosted on SharePoint Online (SPO), a Microsoft 365 application commonly used for intranet sites.

Employee resources and supports are grouped into five areas: Employee resources; Work supports; Campus; Units; and Apps and sites. Find out more about content categories on the Faculty and Staff webpage.

Learn more about UM Intranet content, navigation and supports through the information and UM Today stories below.
