SMUport is a secure site that provides students, faculty and administrative staff with Intranet and Internet services. This is where you can check email, join groups, talk on academic forums, remain up to date on campus events, and much more. You can access SMUport anywhere!

One of the more exciting features of SMUport is its flexibility. By clicking the Content/Layout link (located on the upper-left corner of the SMUport window), you can change the layout of your SMUport display and even add new channels! Default channels include campus announcements and SMU news and events, but you can add other channels, such as news, weather, or a "Word of the Day." We encourage everyone to explore their SMUport options and to refer to the comprehensive Help Center that can be accessed in the upper-right corner.
