  • Click on the Log in button and use your NetID and password to access the account application
  • From the options, select the Google Apps @ UIC 
  • Click on the Create account button to activate you account
You will need this account in order to login to any of the Google Workspace apps. To start, use your UIC email account (NetID@uic.edu) to access Google Drive at gdrive.uic.edu
