How to Get Skype for Business
KU faculty, staff and students are added automatically to the Skype for Business system and directory. To use Skype for Business, you need to have the software client installed (see options below).
Please contact your unit/department's technology support staff directly to install Skype for Business on your KU-owned workstation computer.
