Student Southern Email Account
We have created a new student email address for you, whether you are a returning student or new student. Your new email address typically uses your first name and last name and is followed by @southernwv.edu. Email is an official form of communication (click here to view official policy). The intent is to improve Southern’s ability to communicate important information to our students. Many offices and processes at Southern send email to your Southern email address. You are responsible for any message sent by the school to this email address. You have the ability to forward your email to another email address, if you choose, but it is your responsibility to ensure that you are receiving emails from the school sent to that account. Southern uses Microsoft’s Office 365 as its email system.

If you can’t successfully reset your password, please call the helpdesk on campus at HELP (extension 4357) or off-campus toll-free at 1-866-614-5019. The helpdesk is available 24 hours a day. You can also reach the helpdesk via a live chat or instant message function at www.southernwv.edu/helpdesk. Note that the technicians will not be able to reset a password over the Live Tech Support function as they won’t be able to verify your identity, but that feature can be used for help on Blackboard, Microsoft Office and other general technology questions from anywhere, including a campus lab computer. Please use the 24 hour helpdesk rather than calling your instructor for help with Blackboard or other class related technology.
