Google G Suite for Education for Students and Alumni

Cornell G Suite for Students (Google's G Suite for Education) is Cornell's email, calendar, and collaboration service for students and alumni. It was previously known as Cmail (only the name has changed). 

See Google's G Suite Learning Center for a quick overview of features. The Seven Easy Steps and Learn by Product links near the top of the page are particularly useful.

G Suite's features include:

  • Gmail - email, built-in instant messaging including voice and video chat, mobile access, spam and virus protection
  • Google Calendar - multiple calendars and room/resource scheduling NOT integrated with Cornell rooms and resources
  • Google Docs - word processing, spreadsheets, forms, and presentations
  • Google Drive - file storage and sharing
  • Google Sites - website creation with videos, images, gadgets, and documents integration

G Suite accounts are provided automatically to all students (including undergraduates, graduate students, and professional students). To use your G Suite account, you simply need to activate your Cornell NetID.

After enrolling in Two-Step Login, new alumni users should be sure to follow the steps at Expand Where You Use Two-Step Login.

After you activate your NetID, you will be able to use your NetID and password to sign in to your G Suite account.

The IT Service Desk provides full support for G Suite's email service (Gmail) and calendar service. For all other G Suite services, support is best effort.
