All current students are licensed for Teams with their account. That is the account students need to use to login to Teams. Anyone trying to chat with a student in Teams or add a student to a team needs to use the student's account.

Student employees also often have an Exchange mailbox associated with their work. The Exchange mailbox is associated with a different account, typically with a username of ("SE" stands for "Student Employee"). The student employee account is not licensed for Teams. Sending chat messages to the account does not work.
