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 strongly advises using only apps created and supported by Google 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

Caution: ITS strongly advises using only mobile apps created and supported by Google to connect to U-M Google accounts.

Using third-party apps, including those made by the device’s vendor, can lead to unexpected behavior and data loss. Further, ITS cannot open a case with Google if issues arise as Google only provides support for the apps it offers. Visit Mobile Apps for Google at U-M for a list of apps developed and supported by ITS and Google.
