Activate Your Cornell G Suite Account (Faculty and Staff)
This article applies to: Cornell G Suite for Faculty and Staff
In order to support collaboration with Cornell students and colleagues at other institutions, G Suite accounts - which include Google's email, calendar, and collaboration services - are available for faculty and staff. Activating a G Suite account is optional.
To activate your optional Cornell G Suite account,
- Use your browser to navigate to WhoIAm@Cornell.
Click the Cornell G Suite tab.
Don't see one? Contact the IT Service Desk if you think you are eligible for a Cornell G Suite account for faculty and staff.
- Review the linked university policies, then click Create G Suite Account.
When you see Your G Suite account is available now, click Change Password and follow the steps. This ensures that your password is synchronized for all Cornell services.
(If you need to change your password at another time, see our Choose a New NetID Password page.)
G Suite sign-in uses Cornell login. Your email address is your firstname.lastname@example.org address and your password is the one you use with your NetID to sign in to other Cornell services.
In addition, students, faculty, and staff who use G Suite will need to authenticate using Two-Step Login.
Your email will not be forwarded to your new G Suite account until you follow the steps in our Forward All Email from Office 365 to Cornell G Suite Account article.
This step is necessary if you want to receive mail through your G Suite account. If you only want to use G Suite for other features, such as Google Docs or Google Drive, you can skip this step.
Once forwarding has been set up, you can access your account at gsuite.cornell.edu, signing in with your email@example.com address and the password you use with your NetID.
