All students, faculty, and staff at HSU are provided with a humboldt.edu email address for all official university communications.
We use Google GMail as our email provider; because it's a web-based service, Gmail lets you access your HSU email from anywhere, as long as an Internet connection is available. You may also choose to access Gmail through a local client such as Outlook or Mac Mail. Gmail is part of a broader online environment, Google Apps, that also provides calendaring, applications, groups, and other useful applications, including the ubiquitous Google search engine.
To use Gmail with an HSU-supported local email client, click the appropriate link below:
