Google is here!

All student e-mail accounts have been moved from Webmail to PSU Google Mail. To log on to your new PSU Google Mail account, go to mail.pdx.edu

Google Apps is more than just e-mail. Students now also have access to Google calendar, docs, sites, talk and more. For more information about switching to Google, go to google.pdx.edu

Faculty and staff have the option of moving to Google Mail until Dec. 12, when all remaining e-mail accounts will be converted to Google Mail. To learn more, go to googleapps.pdx.edu.

The e-mail change is part of PSU's migration to Google Apps for Education, a suite of Internet-cloud based services by Google. These applications, which function on Mac, PC, and mobile devices, are free, always online, and do not require the installation of any software on your computer except for a modern internet browser.

Moving to Google provides much needed services and saves the University at least $100,000 per year in server and software costs.
