Technology Accounts and Services

Syracuse University students are given two accounts upon acceptance: an SU NetID, and an official SU Email address, with the suffix “@syr.edu”. These accounts grant students access to the many technology services that they will use during their academic career at SU. Syracuse University’s Information Technology Services (ITS) division also has a webpage dedicated to providing assistance for all generally-available SU Tech services: http://answers.syr.edu.

*Please note that once a student has an official SU Email address, all official electronic communications from the Whitman School of Management will be sent to that address.
