​​What's New in IT?

Information Technology has been busy serving the technology needs of the BSU community. Here are some new services to be aware of for fall:

  1. 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.

  2. 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 and click the email icon. Links to email are also found on the Intranet homepage under Quicklinks.

  3. 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 and click the Office 365 icon. Learn more about O365.

  4. Digital Signage

    Two new digital signs have been mounted on the underpass to better communicate important information with students.

  6. Cloud PC
