Online graduation sessions

Remote graduation sessions, where available, are held on Microsoft Teams.

This page lists the tools and operations required of upcoming graduates for online sessions:

1. Requirements

To ensure videoconference quality, your computer must have the following equipment:

  • A webcam for video streaming
  • Headphones with microphone for optimal audio management. Otherwise, you can use the computer speakers and microphone, but the session may be noisy and audio quality may be affected
  • A stable Internet connection

If you cannot meet these requirements, please contact the University through Informastudenti.

 

2. Microsoft Teams

Graduation sessions will take place on Microsoft Teams. To access Office 365 and Teams services, use your institutional address (@studenti.unimi.it).
On the Unimi portal page  "Microsoft - Office 365 Education" you will find:

  • The guide for activating the speakers and microphone
  • The link to download and install the Teams app on your computer (recommended option for improved performance)
  • Office 365/Teams
3. Graduation session

Upcoming graduates will be invited to connect to Microsoft Teams as scheduled (date and time) in the dedicated section of the University portal: Programme-specific procedures and deadlines.

The invitation will be sent to your institutional email (@studenti.unimi.it), with a confirmation that you were added to the "Team" for your graduation session. 

Please connect well in advance: after logging in to the “Team”, you will see a camera icon next to your name.
