Issue

How do I access my UMICH email via the web? 

Resolution

  1. Navigate to Gmail (mail.umich.edu) via any web browser
    1. Google Chrome is recommended, but any browser should work
    2. Old browsers should open your email but may give a notification at the top of the screen that the browser is out of date and some features may not be available
  2. Enter your uniqname and UMICH (Level-1) password via U-M Weblogin
    1. Note that the uniqname should be all lowercase and should NOT include @umich.edu

You will then be routed into your U-M Google mailbox.

Alternatively:

  1. Navigate to google.com
  2. Click Sign in at the top right of the screen
    1. If you are already signed in to a Gmail account, click the circle with your initials/picture and then select Add another account
  3. Enter your UMICH email address (i.e., uniqname@umich.edu) and click Next
  4. Enter your uniqname and UMICH (Level-1) password via U-M Weblogin
    1. Please note that the uniqname should be all lowercase and should NOT include @umich.edu.

You will then be routed into your U-M Google mailbox.
