Please find below more information on each section. This includes links to relevant articles in our UK Help Centre, where you'll find more details on each area:

- Buildings - optionally, you can add information on Buildings on your campus.
- Bulk Invites - this is where you can review the bulk messages you may have sent to Contacts, inviting them to join Handshake.
