Frequently Asked Questions
This new system allows us to offer enhanced e-mail services to students, including greatly increased storage capacity, without cost to the university. Office 365 for Education gives students a 50 GB mailbox. In addition, through Windows Live services, students have 15 GB of secure online storage (via OneDrive), integration with the university's Global Address List, calendaring feature for personal, academic and student use (record appointments, share calendars, schedule meetings), and many other services (Photos, Instant Messaging, Profiles, etc.).
Your Windows Live ID is the same as your new e-mail address - firstname.lastname@example.org.
The new Office 365 for Education service can be accessed via desktop, web, or mobile devices by going directly to www.outlook.com/rams.wssu.edu. Students will be able to access their new email in any browser.

Although the new WSSU student e-mail addresses will be automatically entered into Banner and Blackboard, WSSU departments and divisions may need to update any other existing databases, spreadsheets, or local distribution lists by changing the e-mail address from email@example.com to firstname.lastname@example.org).
