Quick Fixes:

To set up the Mail and Calendar apps on an iOS device (running iOS 12 or 13) with your Saint Mary's G Suite for Education (formerly Google Apps for Education) account:

  1. On your iOS device, go to Settings, then select Passwords & Accounts.

  2. Select Add Account.

  3. Select Google.

  4. Enter your Saint Mary's e-mail address (i.e. msmith01@saintmarys.edu) in the Email or phone field, then tap Next.

  5. Enter your Saint Mary's password in the Enter your password field, then tap Next.

  6. Make sure that Mail, Contacts, and Calendars are all turned on. (You may also enable Notes if you wish to use that feature.) This will give you access to your Saint Mary’s Mail, Contacts, and Calendars from your iOS device. Tap Save.

  7. You may be prompted about syncing your Contacts and Calendars. In most cases, you will want to select the Keep on my iPhone (or iPad or iPod Touch) option when prompted.

  8. You can now access your Saint Mary’s e-mail via the Mail app, your Saint Mary’s calendar via the Calendar app, and your Saint Mary’s contacts via the Contacts app on your iOS device.

To have new calendar items you create on your iOS device automatically appear on your Saint Mary’s Google Apps calendar, go to Settings and then select Calendar. Select Default Calendar. Select the calendar with your Saint Mary’s e-mail address.
