Employee Information

Employee Computing

The Morehead State University Microcomputer Acquisition Program (MAP) facilitates replacement of microcomputers located in academic labs, classrooms, and campus offices. Replacing computers on a four-year cycle allows MSU to maintain up-to-date desktop and portable computing technology in student labs and faculty/staff offices enhancing our ability to provide a high-quality learning experience. Information Technology currently installs approximately seven hundred replacement computers that are acquired in the summer. These units are both replacements for existing machines reaching the end of their replacement cycle and initial placement machines increasing the number of computers included on MAP.

Employee Email

Microsoft Exchange is the primary email system for MSU faculty and staff. In addition to email, Exchange can provide calendars and scheduling, contacts, notes, task lists and access to public folders. Each Exchange user is provided with 200 megabytes (MB) of mailbox space. This quota applies to all messages in your inbox, outbox (sent mail), and other stored folders on the Exchange server (but it does not apply to folders you have stored on your PC). Additional space is available upon request, but must be justified by unusual storage requirements.


Information Technology offers support of multimedia audio-visual systems in the classroom. IT will design a system, specify equipment, and will oversee installation that will meet the classroom multimedia instructional needs. After installation, IT also provides support to ensure the system continues to perform as specified.

Wireless Network

Connecting personal computers to MSU's wireless network requires the downloading of an 802.1 supplicant to your machine for network authentication. Typically Windows and Linus will require a supplicant and MAC will not.

Morehead State University offers a Virtual Private Network (VPN) connection for employees who travel or work from home. this is a secure, encrypted tunnel providing access to campus resources from remote sites with the same privileges as an on campus connection. Request for activation of this service must be made by the department chair or director of the individual needing access.

Instructions for setting up your wireless and VPN connections are located within the Technology Resources pages of MyMoreheadState
