Oberlin uses Google’s G Suite for Education to power its email and provide online tools and services like Calendar, Drive, and Hangouts.


Your primary Oberlin email address is ObieID@oberlin.edu. To log in, go to gmail.com and enter this address—don‘t forget the @oberlin.edu part—and your ObieID password.

Remember that you‘ll need to set a password of your choice before checking your email for the first time. Didn’t do that yet? Go to https://okta.oberlin.edu and follow the onscreen instructions to establish a password.

Firstname.Lastname Alias

In addition to your primary email address, CIT associates an email alias in the form firstname.lastname@oberlin.edu with your account. You can configure Gmail to send and receive mail using this name-friendly format, but it will not work to log in. Visit the CIT Tech Support Portal for complete alias setup instructions.
