eduroam

The IT Services division is pleased to announce the launch of eduroam, a new wireless service available at all system office locations and some Minnesota State campuses.

eduroam is a secure global wireless access service for the educational and research community. Minnesota State students and employees use StarID@minnstate.edu or  StarID@go.minnstate.edu to access Wi-Fi when visiting participating institutions. Visitors from other eduroam-participating colleges and universities can access Wi-Fi at participating Minnesota State colleges and universities using the usernames and passwords from their home institutions.

Office 365

Beginning in 2015 Minnesota State, addressed the challenge of modernizing and unifying disparate email, calendaring and document storage across the system. After significant consideration, a Microsoft Office 365 Cloud solution was selected and approved. The system office piloted migrating to Office 365, and in September 2015 staff began connecting to a unified, single tenant, Cloud-based Office 365 environment.

System office and campus IT staff will be collaborating in a shared service model to manage Office 365 and the Exchange Active Directory platform and provide user support.
