Network, Email, D2L and Library Access
Once admitted, both Winona and Rochester students can obtain their network user name (StarID) and password by visiting https://starid.mnscu.edu/ and activate your StarID. (You will need your tech/warrior ID) If you are already registered, you used your StarID and password to register and do not need to activate or change the password again.
Your MnSCU StarID is a unique username and password that you use to login to certain MnSCU network resources and all current WSU services such as your WSU e-mail, D2L Brightspace, OnTheHub, E-services, Web Printing, campus wireless network, etc. Once you activate your StarID, you will use the StarID and password to access all online resources.
Winona State email is provided via Microsoft Office 365. In order to log in you will need to enter your StarID@winona.edu and your StarID password. If you can't login, try to reset your StarID password. If you are still unable to log in please contact Tech Support.
If you need assistance, call Tech Support at 507 457-5240 or stop by Tech Support. Tech Support is located Somsen Hall Room 207 on the Winona Campus and Goddard Library 118. You may also email Tech Support at Techsupport@winona.edu or email@example.com.
For WSU-R students to access Goddard Library in Rochester, you will use the UCR ID card barcode and password for remote access to Goddard Library databases and materials.
