BC Google Apps

IMPORTANT SECURITY RECOMMENDATION: Enable 2-Step Verification for Gmail 

In light of recent phishing scams, ITS recommends you enable 2-Step Verification for your BC Gmail accounts. As part of setup, be sure to follow the prompts to add backup devices and obtain backup codes so you never get locked out of your account.

BC faculty, staff, and students can access their email and more* through Google Apps for Education (a web-based suite of communication and collaboration tools). Click on the Google Apps images below to learn more about them.
