Email and Internet

Office 365 and Outlook email are available to all regular employees. Supervisors must request accounts for student employees; these are not automatically created. If you need access to email before your official start date, ask your hiring supervisor who to contact at your Expert Business Office (EBO). They can provide an early access date to Payroll.

Teaching faculty also have access to Gmail accounts known as MIX email, which can be accessed through the WVU Portal. MIX accounts come with unlimited Google Drive storage. Health Sciences employees should go to to log in to their Office 365 system and learn more about their services.

If you would like your email address changed, send a request to or call 304-293-4444.
