Spartan 365

Spartan 365 is MSU’s implementation of Microsoft Office 365 Suite, including Spartan Mail, Teams, Office, SharePoint, and OneDrive. This comprehensive collaboration suite allows users to communicate, collaborate (via voice or chat), and store documents—across all of their devices.

Legacy mail, Campus Exchange and local email servers are currently migrating to Spartan 365.

MSU Mail Protection

MSU Mail Protection enhances MSU email security by providing increased protections and changing the way messages identified as spam or malicious are handled in your MSU email. These enhancements allow MSU IT to better protect the MSU community while significantly limiting the risk of legitimate emails not being delivered. Learn more about MSU Mail Protection.

Campus Active Directory (CampusAD)

MSU funds a Microsoft Windows Active Directory infrastructure for units on campus. The purpose of the central CampusAD is to migrate all these environments into a single AD forest to provide university-wide benefits. Learn more about the Campus Active Directory (CampusAD).

Campus Exchange

Campus Exchange provides management of the email and calendaring features in an Exchange environment so units don’t need to support one locally. Campus Exchange will be phased out by 2019 due to the implementation of Spartan Mail. Learn more about Campus Exchange.
