Remote Working Tools for Faculty and Staff

Connecting to a VPN

A McIntire or UVA VPN is required to connect to many School and/or University resources.  Connection instructions:


Microsoft Teams

  • Teams is a platform for asynchronous text chat, live video/audio conferencing, file sharing, and more.  It's part of the Office 365 suite, meaning you sign in with your COMMBADGE credentials and have access to your email, calendar, contacts, etc. from within the app.  If you've ever used Slack or similar collaboration tools, you'll be comfortable using Teams.
  • All McIntire faculty/staff (and students) can use Teams, either via a browser ( or by using the Microsoft Teams app for Windows, MacOS, iOS, or Android.  Sign in with your COMMBADGE credentials.  (Please note: at this time, Teams is McIntire-only; it cannot be used to communicate with people outside of the School.)
  • A specific Team has been set up for McIntire supervisors.  Join here.
