Cornell G Suite for Students
Cornell G Suite for Students (Google Workspace 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 the Google Workspace Learning Center for a quick overview of features. The Guide for new users 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.
Currently, alumni users of Cornell G Suite are not required to use Two-Step Login but are allowed to enroll to get this additional security for their Cornell G Suite account. 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.
Your email address is your NetID@cornell.edu address (for example, firstname.lastname@example.org).
Because you are not using a Google password, if you need to change your password, you must follow the procedure in our Change Your NetID Password article.
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.
