How to Set Up Google Mobile Access - Android Devices

​Follow the steps below to connect your Android device to your student Google account.

Note: This process should work for most current android devices, though be aware that some of the specific steps regarding the location of the settings may differ from device to device. If these steps do not work you can try an alternative method using IMAP. Details regarding this process can be found here, How to set up Google Mobile access via IMAP.

  1. DO NOT use the built in Google app to configure your connection to your student Google email account. First locate the settings icon on your Android device. This will look like a single gear. Select this icon.
  2. On the setting screen select the Accounts & sync option. The wording may vary from device to device.

  3. From the Accounts & sync screen select the ADD ACCOUNT option at the bottom of the screen.

  4. On the Add account screen select the Google option.

  5. This will direct you to Google where you will need to confirm your student Google email address. This should be entered in its entirety including "". For example, Select Next.

  6. You may be asked to accept Googles Privacy Policy and Terms of Service before continuing. Select ACCEPT to go to the next step of the process.

  7. You will next be asked to enter your Nipissing login credentials. These are the same credentials that you use to log into the My Nipissing portal and WebAdvisor. Select the Sign in button.

  8. If this is the first time you have accessed your Google account you will be presented with a welcome screen. Simply select the I accept. Continue to my account button. 

  9. At this point your device should be connected to your Google account and should be available via the Google App where you access your other email accounts.
