Student Email services - powered by Google

Birkbeck has subscribed to the Google Apps suite of applications for the provision of student email, and for staff who do not want to use Outlook/Exchange or would like to try or use the additional facilities provided within the Google service.

The service is available to all students starting Autumn 2010 onwards, and while Google accounts have been created for all other students and staff, access to the Birkbeck GMail service requires existing users to have changed their Birkbeck password (which will then be synchronized across the Birkbeck GMail service alongside other services).

While no restriction has been placed on the use of other Google Apps at present, only the mail service is supported.

Students wishing to use the service as their default mail service for College communications can change their contact email address from the preferences via MyBirkbeck.

The default format for email addresses is <username> <username> will continue to work.
