Skype is a free video-conferencing software. If you do not already have it installed on your computer, you will need to download it. 

If you're using a university-owned computer, you will need to submit a support case to OIT, so one of our support staff members can download the software for you.

You can use Skype to make person-to-person as well as group calls. 

Getting Started

​Visit Skype Support for detailed instructions on using Skype with your laptop, desktop or mobile device. 


If you're having issues with your microphone, speakers or camera, you will need to configure these settings. For Mac, go to Skype > Preferences > Audio/Video settings. For Windows, go to Tools > Options > Audio/Video settings. Here, you can manually select which microphone, speakers, or camera you want Skype to use.
