Activating your @u.northwestern.edu (or other G Suite) account

If you are one of the below eligible groups, you can follow these instructions to activate your student collaboration (G Suite) account. This article applies to @u.northwestern.edu, @nlaw.northwestern.edu, @alum.northwestern.edu, @kelloggalumni.northwestern.edu, and @fsm.northwestern.edu accounts.

Students

You should have activated your G Suite account as part of your NetID activation process. Otherwise, you can activate it at http://umail.northwestern.edu/activate.

If you have an existing G Suite account and you need to create a different account, contact the Northwestern IT Support Center at consultant@northwestern.edu

Alumni

If you don’t already have a G Suite account, you can create and manage your @alum.northwestern.edu or @kelloggalumni.northwestern.edu account at http://umail.northwestern.edu/alum.

If you already have a G Suite account, you can continue to use it, 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, which will delete all of the data within it.
  1. Optionally, use these instructions to download your existing account content.
  2. Delete your existing G Suite account at the Alumni Account Management page.
  3. Create your new @alum.northwestern.edu or @kellogg.northwestern.edu account by refreshing or re-visiting the Alumni Account Management page.
Note: You must manually download any content/contacts that you would like to retain before activating your @alum.northwestern.edu or @kelloggalumni.northwestern.edu account. Deleting your existing account will delete all of the data within it.

Staff
