Follow

Google@Wharton, our name for the suite of customized Google-based email and collaboration tools, provides Wharton students with key communication tools.

Getting Started

GMail

Gmail, without the ads!   Your account ID is based on your Wharton email address (username@wharton.upenn.edu).  Mail sent to your Wharton address will be delivered to your GMail@Wharton account; when you send mail it will come from your @wharton address, even though you are using Gmail.

Use a mobile device, a web browser or mail client program (such as Outlook) to access your GMail@Wharton account. For more information on using Wharton's Gmail, see:

Google Calendar


 
Your calendar is connected to your Wharton email address (username@wharton.upenn.edu). This means that all your classmates also have a Google calendar, and you can see their Free/Busy information if they choose to allow that. This can be a powerful scheduling tool for learning teams and other collaborative projects.
