Accessing your account
To access your G Suite email account, you can log in with your username and your G Suite account password at http://www.gmail.com
. Your username is your full email address (e.g. WillieWildcat2020@u.northwestern.edu), not an account nickname.
Your password was set when you first activated your account. If you have forgotten this password, you can reset it using your account management page.
Contact the NUIT Support Center or call 847-491-4357 (1-HELP) with other account questions before NetID expiration.
Transitioning Organizational G Suite Accounts
If you are the owner of an @u.northwestern.edu organizational account for a student group, you can transfer account ownership before leaving the University by emailing email@example.com.
Activate an alumni email account
After graduation, you can continue to use your existing G Suite account, or you can choose to delete your existing account and create an @alum.northwestern.edu or @kelloggalumni.northwestern.edu account.
Note: In order to create an alumni email account, you will first need to delete your existing account.
Returning to Northwestern after graduation
If you return to Northwestern as a student, you can continue to use your former G Suite account for academic activities, provided that your new academic program participates in the G Suite service. (The Kellogg School of Management and Feinberg School of Medicine do not use the G Suite service.)
If you return to Northwestern as a faculty or staff member, you cannot use your student G Suite account for educational or business purposes. You will need to use your new faculty/staff email address instead.
After NetID expiration, whom do I contact for support?
After your NetID expires, you can continue to manage your G Suite account using the Alumni Account Management page. For alumni account support or questions, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
For questions and support before your NetID deactivates, contact the Northwestern IT Support Center at 847-491-4357 (1-HELP) or email@example.com
