Email & Exchange

E-mail at WSU

Every WSU employee or student has an official WSU e-mail address ( that is available to them and is listed in the WSU Directory.  People at WSU will use this official WSU e-mail address to correspond with you.  Employees may also continue to use an e-mail account hosted by a third party e-mail provider (i.e. Hotmail, Gmail, Firststep, etc…) by forwarding the e-mail address to your external e-mail provider. For students who are not also an employee, the e-mail address is automatically forwarded to their Microsoft Office 365 e-mail address.

Official WSU E-mail Account - Students

Washington State University has partnered with Microsoft to provide Office 365 e-mail accounts for students. When you are admitted at WSU your Office 365 e-mail account and your official WSU e-mail address is automatically set up.
