Logging In to U-M Google

U-M Google uses Single Sign On with the U-M Weblogin and Duo for two-factor authentication. This document provides instructions for logging in to your U-M Google account from the web or a mobile device.

Caution: ITS recommends using only apps and clients created and supported by Google or web browsers to connect to U-M Google accounts.

From a Web Browser

Tip: Google Chrome is the recommended browser to use with U-M Google. It allows features and functionality that are not available in other browsers.

Navigate to an app with U-M Weblogin

  1. Use one of the following links:
  2. Enter your uniqname and UMICH (Level-1) password. 
  3. Complete Duo two-factor authentication.

Navigate to your Google Account

  1. Use the link: myaccount.google.com.
  2. Click Sign in.
  3. Enter your uniqname@umich.edu email address and click Next to reach the U-M Weblogin.
  4. Enter your uniqname and UMICH password
  5. Complete Duo two-factor authentication. 
  6. Click the Google Apps icon  and select an app.

Account Verification and Selection

After completing Duo two-factor authentication, you may encounter additional prompts. They are legitimate, and it is safe to complete them.

  • Account Verification: This is a safeguard Google Chrome uses when it doesn’t recognize the device you are on. Verify your uniqname@umich.edu email address and click Continue.
  • Account Selection: Choose Organizational G Suite Account. This occurs when a Google account was created using a uniqname@umich.edu email address before the university adopted Google. It is referred to as a “Conflicting Account.” To resolve the conflicting account and prevent this prompt in the future, contact the ITS Service Center.

From a Mobile Device

ITS recommends using only apps and clients created and supported by Google or web browsers to connect to U-M Google accounts. Third-party apps and clients are created by a group or company other than Google. Google does not support the use of third-party apps or incidents that might result from using them. ITS does not provide configuration assistance or additional support for using any third-party apps or clients.
