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. 


Please note the following timelines for various types of Brown accounts:

New students can activate their Brown Gmail accounts 24 hours after committing to enroll at Brown.

New staff can activate their Brown Gmail accounts on the morning of their official start date.

New faculty can activate their Brown Gmail accounts up to one month in advance of their faculty appointment start date.
