Google@UH Gmail

Overview

Google@UH Gmail is the University of Hawaii's email platform. Your @hawaii.edu email address remains, but has been activated as a Google Apps account which gives you access to many Google services, like Gmail, by using your @hawaii.edu email address as the Google username to log in. To access your Google@UH Gmail account go to: http://gmail.hawaii.edu. (Note: Your Google@UH account is separate/different from a regular Google or Gmail account (if you have one) which is why you go to http://gmail.hawaii.edu and not http://gmail.com).

Tip - To bookmark Google@UH Gmail in your Internet browser, right-click on this link, http://gmail.hawaii.edu, and left-click on "Bookmark this link" (or something similar depending on the Internet browser you are using).
