UTEP's student email is Microsoft Office 365. Your @miners.utep.edu account is two separate accounts: your UTEP @miners email account (Office 365) and your personal Microsoft account for accessing your OneDrive web file storage (OneDrive.com).
Your UTEP email is the official means of communication with all UTEP entities including Admissions and Registration, financial communications such as Scholarships and Financial Aid, Goldmine, Blackboard, and your faculty. All UTEP students are provided with an @miners.utep.edu Office 365 email account. Students inbox storage is 25 GB and attachments can be up to 25 MB.
