Configure Student Gmail on your Android phone

The steps below explain how to configure your Student Gmail account on your Android phone. It is recommended that you use the Gmail app, available from the Android Marketplace, rather than any third party email applcations on your phone.

1.   On your Android phone, open the Gmail app.

2.   Tap the Menu button.

3.   Tap Accounts.

4.   Tap Add account.

5.   If you are prompted for an account type, select Gmail or Google.

6.   In the Username field, enter your entire student email address (e.g. username@mail.buffalostate.edu).

7.   Enter your Student Gmail password, and click Next to complete the setup.
