Connect to Email

Microsoft's Office 365 provides a powerful email package enabling users to access mail, calendar, contacts, and to-do lists all from the Outlook Desktop app, on the web, or your mobile devices.

The web address for accessing your email online is:

http://mail.gordon.edu

Please note, your user name is your Firstname.Lastname@gordon.edu.

Apple Users: Please do not use Safari the first time you sign into your account as many users have reported errors when they first setup their account. Once you log in the first time, Safari should work.

If you are new to Gordon College and have not previously set up an email account, you will need to log into your new email account through a browser before connecting to it through an email client or mobile device.


If you use Microsoft Outlook, Apple Mail, a smart phone, or a tablet to connect to your email account, or if you wish to forward your Gordon account to another email, please follow the instructions below. Please note, Web Access (http://mail.gordon.edu) is the only supported method for Alumni to check their Gordon email account. Other options are provided below for faculty/staff and current students, and should work fine for alumni, but are not supported by CTS.
