Email at MSU
Michigan State University supports and runs two email systems used for official university communications. Email addresses in both systems are NetID@msu.edu (e.g., firstname.lastname@example.org where “sparty” is the MSU NetID).
- Undergraduate students are on MSU Spartan Mail/Office 365 email. (Read more about the Office 365 migrations.)
- All others are using MSU’s Legacy Email service, referred to as MSU Webmail.
After entering a NetID on the main MSU email page, individuals are directed to the correct email system based on their role.
MSU FileDepot allows users to share large files up to 900MB with recipients inside or outside Michigan State University. Files are automatically deleted 14 days after they are uploaded.
FileDepot Internal offers additional features from FileDepot in order to address institutional data requirements.
FileDepot can be used to help get around email attachment size limits.
MSU Google G Suite for Education
MSU IT offers the MSU community Google for Education to use for research, teaching, and collaborative projects. The enabled apps in the MSU Education Edition include Google Drive with unlimited storage, Google Sites, Google Classroom, and Google Calendar.
MSU Google Apps are integrated with MSU NetIDs and passwords and offer increased securities and protections not found in the public version of these applications.
MSU Code Repository
The MSU Code Repository uses the open source Git distributed version control system with the GitLab management application. Source code added to the repository will be private by default with options for sharing with both MSU and non-MSU users.
Documents, blogs, research papers, and other text-based works can use the platform for version control, sharing, and collaboration.
