Gmail Address Creation & Use

The San Jose State University Research Foundation operates under one standardized email format for all its employees in alignment with the San Jose State University. The purpose of using this standardized email format is to ensure that we have one specific method of conveying all Research Foundation related communications or emergency information in an efficient manner. Every Research Foundation employee is required to use the standardized email format below:
(first name.last name@sjsu.edu).

For Research Foundation new hires, this standardized email account will be set up as part of the new hire process. To activate your account follow the instructions below.

We recognize that some employees may have preferred, location based, email accounts. These employees must activate their Research Foundation email account and may then forward any Research Foundation email received to their preferred, location based, email account.

To activate your SJSU email:

  1. First-time users, begin by setting your password at SJSUOne Set/Reset Password
  2. Then, to access your email account, go to SJSU Email (SSO Login)
  3. To sign in, use your SJSUOne ID and password – the same ID and password you use to access SJSUOne and the campus wireless network
  4. After you login, you will see your email address (in upper right corner of screen). It will use the format firstname.lastname@sjsu.edu.
