New myMemphis Portal


Information Technology Services (ITS) is excited to announce that the University of Memphis will be transitioning to a new myMemphis portal on May 10, 2024. The new portal will provide a more streamlined and user-friendly experience for accessing campus resources, services and information while ensuring a consistent experience across devices and platforms. Users will have access to identical information whether they are using the University mobile app or accessing the portal through a web browser.

The new myMemphis portal will offer a modern design, improved navigation and enhanced functionality, including the ability to customize layouts and easily search for and find resources. To help familiarize users with the new portal, a user guide has been created that outlines features and provides instructions on how to navigate the new system. You can access the user guide at the following link: Portal User Guide.

Please note that the current myMemphis portal will be decommissioned on May 10, 2024, and all users will be automatically redirected to the new portal. We encourage you to review the user guide in advance to prepare for the switch.

Note: The new portal is available today and can be accessed at

Zoom to Teams Transition


In March 2020, ITS promptly implemented and introduced Zoom to address the urgent need for a virtual meeting platform for academics and administration. Over time, Microsoft has made substantial investments in advancing their online collaboration platform, Microsoft Teams. Following a thorough examination of budgets and feature comparisons between the two platforms, we will capitalize on our longstanding partnership with Microsoft and adopt the collaboration tool Microsoft Teams. Effective August 12, 2024, we will discontinue the use of Zoom. For more information about the Zoom to Teams transition, please see our page
