Information Technology has been busy serving the technology needs of the BSU community. Here are some new services to be aware of for fall 2016:
24x7x365 IT Help Desk
During normal business hours, requests for
support are answered by BSU Information
Technology staff. After hours support is
provided by an external vendor. This extends
support to 24x7x365 availability and
accommodates the needs of remote students
and faculty working online. Users may access Help Desk services via chat, email, phone or in-person at one of our two locations. View IT Support Info.
Office 365 Employee/Staff Email
Over the summer, faculty and staff email was migrated to Outlook for O365. Now students, faculty and staff are on the same email system and can more easily collaborate with O365 tools. To access
student email, login to the Student Portal at
mycampus.bridgew.edu and click the email icon. Links to email are also found on the Intranet homepage under Quicklinks.
Office 365 More
Office 365 provides BSU students, faculty and staff with a full
suite of online productivity applications, including
email, One Drive, Office Online, Office Pro Plus
download for free, unlimited storage, and more.
Office 365 accounts are automatically created when
you claim your BSU User Account. To access
Office 365, login to the Student Portal at
mycampus.bridgew.edu and click the
Office 365 icon. Learn more about O365.
Two new digital signs have been mounted on the underpass to better communicate important information with students.
Mobile Responsive websites

Cloud PC enables students, faculty and staff to access a virtual BSU computer lab PC,
from anywhere, at any time, from any device,
via the web. Learn more about Cloud PC.
Another layer of campus security – personalized
