You will access Office 365 by logging into MyVSU. The benefit of this change is that users have one less set of credentials to need to keep track of. If you are unable to log into MyVSU, please use our Self-Service Password Reset Tool. It will allow you to look up your username and set your password.
Only retired faculty and staff will be able to keep their VSU email. After you discontinue employment with the university, you will have a 45 day grace period in order to move email or re-assign projects. After this grace period, the account will be deleted.
- Emails can be no larger than 25 MB in size.
- Each email may have no more than 500 recipients.
- You may send emails to no more than 10,000 recipients per day..
- You may store no more than 50 GB of email in your account.

Office 365 replaces the email and collaboration tools found in Windows Live. It does not replace copies of Office 2010 found in campus computer labs and offices. Office 2013, on the other hand, is a replacement for the Office 2010 product. However, students, faculty and staff are able to access the Microsoft Office Web Apps through their Office 365 OneDrive account.
