SharePoint Online (or Sites which is part of the University's Office 365 application suite) provides collaborative websites for groups such as research teams, committees, and course-related activities. While DoIT encourages students, faculty, and staff to first investigate Google Drive or Google Sites to handle collaborative projects among teams, SharePoint is certainly a viable alternative.  SharePoint is HIPAA and export compliant.

What is SharePoint?

Sharepoint allows you to host a private site - which makes it ideal for group projects. Research and high level documents and files are kept safe and in one place for your team, committee or group.

Getting Started

If you do not yet have your own site - see Requesting a SharePoint Site below. 

You will need one of the following Browsers to access SharePoint: Internet Explorer (8, 9, 10, or 11), Firefox (latest version), Safari (latest version). The latest version of Google Chrome will work, however, you may experience some diminished functionality. More info on compatible browsers.

Request a SharePoint Site

If the purpose of this desired site is clinically related (i.e. SBU Hospital, SBU Physicians, etc.) and is to be used for patient healthcare information or any other purpose that falls under HIPAA regulations, do not use this form. Instead, contact the SBUH IT Division Help Desk at (631) 444-4357 or, and request a SharePoint site under their management.

To request a site otherwise, submit a ticket.
