Gmail Information

How do I log in to Gmail?

Please note that signing in to Gmail will be different than signing in to webmail at mail.faulkner.edu. Also, if you haven’t changed your Faulkner password since December 9, you will need to change it prior to accessing your Gmail account.

For Faculty/Staff:

First, change your password by logging on to an on-campus Faulkner desktop PC, then pressing CTRL + ALT + DEL. After that, click Change Password. If you need to change your password from off-campus, log in at mail.faulkner.edu. After logging in, click Options on the upper right side, then click Change Your Password. Once your password has been successfully changed, in a web browser (Google Chrome is preferred, but Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer should work fine as well), go to www.gmail.com. Your entire Faulkner email address (i.e. ballen@faulkner.edu if your name is Barry Allen) will be your user name. For your password, you should be able to use the password you just changed it to.

 

For Students:

First, you will need to reset your password here: https://secure.faulkner.edu/accounts. Once you have successfully changed your Faulkner password, it should be synced with Gmail and you should be able to log in normally at Gmail.com from now on. Then, in a web browser (Google Chrome is preferred, but Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer should work fine as well), you will need to go to www.gmail.com.  Your entire Faulkner email address (i.e. oliver.queen@faulkner.edu if your name is Oliver Queen) will be their user name. For your password, you should be able to use the password that you just changed it to.

 

How do I add my new Gmail account to my iPad/iPhone?

Note: This will only work after you have changed your password and set up your Gmail account.
On your iPad/iPhone: Go to Settings, then Mail, Contacts, Calendars. Tap Add Account. Choose Google.  Type in your Faulkner email address as your user name and your Faulkner password as your password. Tap Allow. Tap Save.
