Managing Multiple Google Accounts

The College supplies all students, faculty, and staff with a Google Apps for Education account, which uses you Amherst email address as your username. Many people also have personal Google accounts which can lead to questions about exactly which account you are in at any one moment. This article explains how to juggle multiple Google accounts.

Access a Department, Lab, Club, College or Student Organization Email Account

If your department, laboratory, student or College organization email account is an IT Support Services managed account, once you are given permission for the account, access it by using your web browser. See our instructions below.

If you are not sure what kind of email account you have, contact the IT Help Desk and we will let you know.

Email and Calendaring

Amherst students, faculty, and staff automatically receive an Amherst email mailbox when they join the College. Student organizations can request an email account or a listserv mailing list by using the Campus Center's student organization registration form.

The College's email service is Gmail and is provided as part of Google G Suite. Gmail provides email, calendar, contacts, etc. Your messages and other data remain in the GMail system until you explicitly delete them.

Gmail is accessible via any web browser (Chrome is preferred) and via apps on iOS and Android devices.
