Use Google to sign on to systems

To modernize technology infrastructure, newly implemented systems are built with Google authentication for single sign-on, and ITS has moved some existing systems to Google authentication as well.

When you access Canvas or Bridge, you need to be logged on to your Google account. Most often, you’ll see an error when trying to access these systems because you are logged into the browser with a non-TWU Google account.
