Computing
 
COSINE provides computer support.    http://cosine.oregonstate.edu/
 
They can help you order computers, set up your email etc…
 
physics.oregonstate.edu is where your home area will be. Henri Jansen generally sets you up there.
 
Email
 
You need to sign up for an exchange account and a science account and forward your exchange stuff to science.  Exchange gives you voicemail and calendering, Science gives you more space for your actual emails.
Best to go visit cosine and have them set this up as there are interesting features in forwarding from exchange to science.
