Typically, email activation is done while activating your Brown account. However, if this was done before getting a Brown email address, follow the instructions below. New students can activate their Brown Gmail accounts after committing to the university.
Activate Brown Gmail Account
- Visit myaccount.brown.edu
- Click "Log in and Manage Account"
- If prompted, log in with your Brown username and password. If you're already logged in to another site, you may automatically be logged in with single sign on.
- On the left menu, click Activate Brown Google Account
- Follow the steps on the screen to agree to the terms and choose a password
After activating, your email address will appear on the bottom of your Profile (link on left menu). You can log into your email at gmail.com.
