Skype for Business, Conferencing Dial-in Numbers and Web App

How do non-university personnel join a Skype for Business conference?

Non-University personnel have a few different options when trying to join a Skype for Business conference call.

Calling In

The first option they have is to call in the conference. They can call either of the below numbers and enter the conference ID to join the conference. Please use the number in your local area code when calling.  If using a mobile phone that does not charge for long distance, using the 217 area code number is preferred.

(217) 332-6338
(312) 994-8410
(888) 983-3631 

Using the Skype for Business Web App

They can also use the Skype for Business Web App. This is done by following the Conference URL they were given by the meeting organizer and can only be done on a computer without Skype for Business installed on it. The Web App is a very light version of Skype for Business.  The customer will also have to install a plugin to use the Web App.

Please see Skype for Business, Participate in Online Meetings with Skype for Business Web App for more information about the Web App.
