Hawkmail (Google Mail)


Prior to December 2020 - Hawkmail (our local name for the New Paltz domain on Google's GSuite for Education) was the official email system for all SUNY New Paltz students.  Starting in December 2020 - we have started to make Office 365 - not Hawkmail the default system.  This will occur in two phases: 

  • New students first matriculating or registering any time on or after December 1st, 2020 will use Office 365, not Hawkmail, for their email.
  • Existing students will be switched from Hawkmail to Office 365 in Summer 2021.

For more information, see our Frequently Asked Questions regarding student email change.
