You can create a bookmark for any of these links in your browser for easy access.
All of these will present you with a CAS (Central Authentication Service) login screen similar to the one below if your browser has not already authenticated (logged in). You will always use your netid and password to login via CAS.
You may occasionally be presented with a Google login screen like the one below. If you enter your email@example.com in the email field and leave the password blank, when you click Sign In it will redirect you to the ND CAS screen. You will then enter your netid and password to connect to the desired Google service.
Note: You must include the @nd.edu, so that Google knows that your account is managed by ND when presented with a Google login screen, in order to be routed the CAS.
We've posted additional tips for those that need to login with multiple Google accounts.
