Email at Georgia Southern

Georgia Southern University utilizes Google Apps for Student, Faculty, Staff and Department email. Google Apps is a suite of web-based messaging and collaboration tools that Google hosts on their own servers. Google provides these applications as a “service,” rather than as software to download and install. To access these applications, you simply use a web browser on a computer that is connected to the Internet.  On your mobile device, apps for Gmail, Calendar, Docs and other Google services are available from the Georgia Southern, iOS and Android App Stores.
