Be sure and check your WSU email account regularly as this is the way that WSU communicates with you.

Accessing your WSU Office 365 mailbox

There are two ways you can get to your Microsoft Office 365 Web dashboard and the Outlook Online application where your WSU email is stored:

  1. This is a direct link to your Office 365 dashboard on the Web. You may want to bookmark it.
  2. Click on Office365 & Email on the Resources tab on www.winona.edu

Your login credentials are your StarID followed by "@go.minnstate.edu" for students and "@minnstate.edu" for employees . Your WSU email address, however, will remain your friendly email address, e.g. firstname.lastname@go.winona.edu for students and firstname.lastname@winona.edu for employees.

Setting your primary Minnesota State email address

If you are registered as a student or employee of more than one Minnesota State school, it is best to set your WSU address as your primary email address while you are attending WSU. Use the following steps to review and change your primary email address:

  3. Sign in with your StarID and password (If you forgot your password, then go back and select the box to Reset your Password)
  4. At the top of the page, click "Office 365 Contact"
  5. Make sure your listed primary email is either First.LastName@go.winona.edu (for students) or Username@winona.edu (for employees)
  6. If it does not match the previous step, click "Select New Student Contact Card" and select the correct email address.
