Montana State University is constantly monitoring the status of COVID-19 in close coordination with the Montana University System and the Montana Department of Health and Human Services. We are committed to keeping our students, faculty and staff safe as the situation evolves. For an update on MSU's campuswide response, please visit MSU's COVID-19 Website.

With several members of the MSU family moving to class and work environments that aren't located on campus, i.e. Work from Home, University Information Technology would like to provide the following resources to make sure that your experiences during this disruption are successful, effective and secure.
