New UU Gmail account login procedure

The way you log in to UU Gmail has changed since mid-April. Under the new procedure, you log in using your university email address and Solis password. Your old UU Gmail password will no longer be active. Additional information about this change can be found on the UU student site.

 

How to log in to UU Gmail

1. Go to gmail.students.uu.nl (as normal)

2. Enter your university email address (for example: j.a. smith@students.uu.nl)

3. You will be redirected to the secure UU environment. The following screen will appear.

4. Enter your university email address and Solis password. Your old UU Gmail password will no longer be active. Use your Solis password from now on.

5. You have now logged in successfully.

Easier and more secure
Utrecht University is working to improve login ease and security for students and staff. In the future, you will be able to log in to all university’s IT services using your university email address and password. Many systems and applications can already be accessed this way. From mid-April the new login procedure will also apply to Google Apps for Education, which includes UU Gmail.

Mobile devices
You don't have to change the settings on your mobile phone or tablet (when you use the standard Gmail app/client).
