If You Already Have a Gmail Account (G Suite Users)
How are Gmail and G Suite different?
G Suite includes Gmail and several other tools. While you can continue to use your own Gmail account if you like, it will be completely separate from your G Suite account.
Your own personal Gmail account will also include advertising. Your G Suite account will not have any advertising until you leave the university.

If you have a personal Google account associated with your cornell.edu email address, then next time you sign in to any Google product (after you are provisioned with a G Suite account), you'll be prompted to resolve the conflict between accounts. We recommend removing the association between your Cornell address and your non-G Suite account.
