ECSU Email/Domain Account
ECSU students and employees are given a school email account. Your email can be accessed through a web browser by following one of the links above, or by logging into the Microsoft Outlook app on your mobile device or computer.
The domain user account allows access to university resources such as lab computers and the electronic library databases.
Student email and domain accounts are created for incoming students by IT Client Services, either for new student orientation or within the first week of school (there are a few exceptions).
