About Gmail at IU

On this page:


Gmail at IU is a student email service that works seamlessly with other Google at IU apps such as Hangouts Chat, Drive, and Calendar.

Access your mail

  • Web: After your email account has been upgraded, you can access your mail directly at Google at IU. Log in with your IU username and passphrase. You can also access your mail directly by logging into gmail.com with your username@iu.edu email address and your IU passphrase.
    • If you access your mail via the web, you can enable the new Gmail interface. To do this:
      1. Log into your mail.
      2. Click the gear icon in the upper right-hand corner.
      3. In the resulting drop-down menu, click Try the new Gmail. The page will refresh, at which point you will begin using the new interface.
  • Email client: See Configure an email client or mobile device for Gmail at IU.


  • You are required to establish an IU email account and read email sent from IU faculty and administration; see official communications information.
  • Manage your mail account settings, such as your preferred email address, at Manage your Email.
  • Any accounts with Google Gmail that you already have or create in the future remain separate from your Gmail at IU or Imail account.
Many students are employed in some capacity by Indiana University and use email in their employment, either to communicate with their co-workers and supervisors, or to carry out their job responsibilities. Because Gmail at IU, Imail, and Umail accounts are hosted by vendors external to IU, student employees may use these accounts to conduct university business only if they do not receive or transmit any institutional data considered sensitive via these accounts. For work involving sensitive institutional data, student employees must use Exchange email accounts. For more, see About student email accounts and IU employment.
