New Sign-In Page for Google Apps Services

Google has made a change to the login page, they changed it from our branded web page to the "normal" Google login page. They have done this to all Google Apps domains not just SU.

The biggest impact for the SU community is you will now have to enter your full e-mail address to login. On the old page you could just enter username, now you will need to enter
One new feature is the Stay signed in checkbox is selected by default. If you want to sign out of Google Apps automatically when you close your browser, you should deselect this checkbox. If you leave this checkbox selected when you sign in, you will remain signed in for two weeks or until you click the Sign out button that appears when you click on your photo in the upper right corner.

If you have any questions regarding this issue please contact the Help Desk at or 540-665-5555.


A security flaw in iOS devices has been fixed by Apple through an update that should be available in your settings.  This flaw allowed hackers to read information that you access through secure websites.  If you haven't done so yet, please update your iOS devices as soon as possible!
