Key tools

Staff intranet and MyBristol, the University portal

The staff intranet in SharePoint provides access to internal information, access to Office 365 tools and news. In addition, we have MyBristol which is a single point of access for information, services and resources and is an accessible way to sign in to a variety of services at the same time.  By signing in to both services you are presented with relevant content containing information specific to you.
