MASONLIVE is the email system for all students at George Mason. It is powered by Microsoft Office 365. New students should go to Patriot Pass to obtain a Mason username (also called a NetID) and password: password.gmu.edu/auth/gnum.jsp. Students who have never matriculated at George Mason should use the following information for their Claim Code: your birthdate - mmddyy - with leading zeros (e.g., if you were born on May 7, 1975 your Claim Code would be 050775.
Faculty and staff use a separate Microsoft Office 365 email system. Note: the email address for all faculty, staff, and students is firstname.lastname@example.org.
NOTICE TO STUDENTS: It is expected that every student regularly check his/her GMU email account, as it is used for all Mason Law communications, including emergency notices as well as academic, student organization, physical plant and career information. There are no excuses for missing deadlines or other important information due to failure to read emails sent to student email accounts. If you forward your GMU e-mail to another account, be sure to regularly check your Mason account to make sure that it is NOT over quota and bouncing messages.
Email Spam Filter
The university provides an automatic spam filer called IronPort. You will automatically receive daily junk mail summaries from IronPort in your Mason e-mail. You can change settings on your junk mail and view all messages caught in your junk mail filter by going to https://ironport-antispam.gmu.edu/ (login with your Mason e-mail username and password).

The Law School makes heavy use of student listservs for communicating important information from the law school administration on classes, weather alerts and cancellations, career services information, and school-wide events. The student organizations also send out messages announcing events of interest to law students. Students will be automatically subscribed to the appropriate list before the beginning of each academic year. The lists are archived on the web at law.gmu.edu/students/listservs. If you believe that you are on the wrong list or you're not receiving messages, please contact Deborah Keene at email@example.com.
