NYU Email



All important announcements from NYU and Gallatin will be sent to your NYU email account only; therefore, you must use your NYU Email account and check it on a daily basis.

If you prefer to use a non-NYU email account, please have your NYU email automatically forwarded to your preferred account by following the below steps.

Forwarding Mail to Another Account

NYU uses gmail. You can find instructions on how to forward mail in gmail here.

You should test each forward you have set immediately by sending a sample email with an attachment to yourself at your NYUHome account. Make sure the email arrives properly, including the attachment, at the account(s) to which you have forwarded your mail within a reasonable amount of time. If it does not, you should immediately disable the forwarding from your NYUHome account and investigate your account at the other location.

Tips: Make sure that the account to which you are forwarding is not configured to auto-forward email to your NYUHome account. If you have two accounts set to forward email to each other, you will create a mail loop, and will not receive the mail at either location!
