Activating your @u.northwestern.edu (or other G Suite) account
If you are a member of one of the following groups, use these instructions to activate your student collaboration (G Suite) account. This applies to @u.northwestern.edu, @nlaw.northwestern.edu, @alum.northwestern.edu, @kelloggalumni.northwestern.edu, and @fsm.northwestern.edu accounts.
All students (except Kellogg and Feinberg students
) use G Suite accounts for email, calendaring, and collaboration. You should have activated your G Suite account as part of your NetID activation process. Otherwise, you can activate it at https://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 firstname.lastname@example.org
If you don’t already have a G Suite account from your days as a student, you can create and manage your @alum.northwestern.edu or @kelloggalumni.northwestern.edu account at https://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: Before you can create an alumni email account, you first need to delete your existing account, which will delete all of the data within it.
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.
Faculty members who want to use G Suite apps to collaborate with students can request a G Suite account by emailing email@example.com
