CU: How Do I Access Google Apps?
Google Apps for Education is a web-based application, so you will always access your University email and calendar through an Internet browser.
You will use the same process to access your University email whether you are on or off campus, on a University computer or your personal computer or mobile device.
Information technology recommends using the Google Chrome browser as Google Apps works best with Chrome; in fact, some Google Apps features only work in Google Chrome.
To access Google Chrome on a University computer, click [Start] > All Programs > Google Chrome and then click the Chrome icon. If the icon is not there, try [Start] > All Programs > CedarNet > Communications.
You can install Chrome on a personal computer by following these steps:
- Open an Internet browser and navigate to google.com/chrome.
- Click [Download Chrome].
- The box to “Set Google Chrome as my default browser” is automatically checked.
- Click [Accept and Install].
- Click [Save File].
- Open “ChromeSetup.exe.”
- Click [Run].
- The Chrome browser will automatically open.
You will find the Google Apps landing page at cedarville.edu/google. Your username and password will not work if you try to log in through Gmail.
