This summer, George Mason University’s student email account and Microsoft services will be migrated from MasonLive to Office 365, the email and calendar system for all current Mason faculty and staff.
For more information on the change, visit the Student Office 365 Migration Roadmap. This roadmap includes a detailed timeline and information on how to help students, student wage employees, and faculty/staff prepare for the transition.
The purpose of this change is to simplify service offerings at Mason, improve university-wide collaboration, deliver a consistent user experience across campus, and provide additional Microsoft resources to students, such as Microsoft Teams.
To Determine How This Change May Affect You
What’s Changing for MasonLive Users
- Your MasonLive (email and calendar) and OneDrive files will automatically be migrated to the Office 365 system
- Your MasonLive address (NetID@masonlive.gmu.edu) will change to your Office 365 address (NetID@gmu.edu)
- Any mail sent to your @masonlive.gmu.edu address AFTER the migration will be automatically forwarded to your new @gmu.edu address
- You will use your Patriot Pass Password to access your email
- You will access your email account via http://mso365.gmu.edu
Important Notes for Mason Faculty and Staff
- This migration DOES NOT affect your faculty and staff email; Your @gmu.edu account remains your primary account
- For those who currently have accounts on both MasonLive and the Office 365 system, MasonLive information will be copied to their existing @gmu.edu account
