Bronco NetID Services and Quotas

A Bronco NetID is your Western Michigan University username for all major systems, including GoWMU, Elearning and Webmail Plus. 

Student available services and quotas

Student Bronco NetID services expire approximately 12 months after no further enrollment. Alumni Bronco NetID services will expire approximately 24 months after graduation. Alumni email will expire after six months of inactivity.

It is the responsibility of the student to assure backups of their data have been made prior to expiration of services.

Enrolled students may manage their Bronco NetID quotas in the My Self Service channel in GoWMU. The Adjust My Disk Quotas link allows adjustments to the default quota values. If you are not using homepages, for example, you may reallocate that quota to your file space, and vice versa. Quotas may also be increased as needed up to a maximum of 1 GB total by using that link. Note that the email quota is a separate quota and may not be managed by using My Disk Quotas.
