E-mail at WSU
Every WSU employee or student has an official WSU e-mail address (firstname.lastname@example.org) 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 @wsu.edu e-mail address to your external e-mail provider. For students who are not also an employee, the @wsu.edu 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.
Official WSU E-mail Account - Faculty & Staff
WSU offers Exchange e-mail and calendaring services called Connect! e-mail accounts to faculty, staff, graduate and professional students. When you create a new Connect! e-mail account your official WSU e-mail address is automatically set up.
On the occasion that an undergraduate student needs a WSU Connect! e-mail account, one may be requested via CougTech at 509-335-4357 or CougTech.
Some WSU departments and colleges maintain their own e-mail service, please contact the respective systems support staff for the latest information on using the appropriate e-mail service in these areas:
