Changes to MasonLive Student Email This Summer

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.
