Your GU email account, Zagmail, is very important. Professors and Graduate School Staff use Zagmail as your primary contact. You are responsible for all information sent to Zagmail. After you register for classes, we can request your Zagmail account. Once your account is created, we will email you your Gonzaga email address and instructions for setting your password.

Please note: Gonzaga has had issues with the blocking/junk-mail functions of non-GU email accounts such as hotmail, gmail, yahoo, etc. If you forward your Zagmail to any of these accounts, you many not receive important (and official) emails from Gonzaga.

Student ID Cards

Your GU ID acts as your library card and is required for many general uses at Gonzaga, including sporting events. To obtain your ID Card you must be registered for classes and have your payment plan arranged. You can go to Student Financial Services in the lower level of Crosby or use one of their mail-in options. Be advised offices on campus may close for lunch.


When you register for classes you are automatically registered on Blackboard.


Please note: Not all classes will be on Blackboard as professors have to turn on their Blackboard site manually. If you do not see your course via Blackboard, please contact your professor directly.
