Accessing Your Hawkmail Account

Note: As of June 2021 - Microsoft 365, not Hawkmail, is the official university email system for all students (as it already has been for faculty and staff).  This article is kept for legacy purposes - or for those who still have Hawkmail.  As of August 2022 - the link to Hawkmail from the New Paltz web page will be removed.

For more information, see the following article: Frequently Asked Questions regarding student email change.

You can access Hawkmail by any of the following methods:

  • Via a web browser - go to and login with your full address
  • Via the Gmail app on Android or iPhone
  • Via the Mail app on iPhone


Your Hawkmail account is a Gmail account, so if you already have a Gmail account you will need to add your Hawkmail to your Gmail sign in page.

  1. Go to Gmail and sign out of your personal account.
  2. At the login window select "Add account" at the bottom.
  3. Enter your Hawkmail address []
  4. Enter your newpaltz user password and sign in.

Next time you can select which email account you want to log into.

The brief video below provides a little more explanation about the connection between Hawkmail/Gmail and will walk you through connecting to your Hawkmail account.
