Getting Started

Welcome to your new University of Guelph Central Login Account. This account is provided by Computing and Communications Services (CCS) for your personal use while associated with the university. Your account allows you to access online services such as Gryph Mail, WebAdvisor and other computing services on campus. 

What You Need to Know

The use of this account, and the use of any computing services provided by the University, is covered by the Acceptable Use Policy and Guidelines (AUPG). We recommend you familiarize yourself with the rights and responsibilities described in the AUPG.

Protect Your Email

You may expect to start receiving a small amount of spam email (i.e. unsolicited junk mail). You can train the spam filtering by selecting the spam email, and clicking on the 'Junk' button. Messages in the Junk folder are automatically purged after 30 days. 

Protect Your Account

When you received your new account, it came with a preset password. We strongly recommend that you change your password using the change your password tool. 

CCS provides a free password insurance service which allows you to reset your password in the event that you forget your password. You must sign up for this service ahead of time to be able to change your password when it is forgotten.
