Student Communication

Electronic Mail


GTU provides GTU doctoral students with gmail accounts.  Your GTU email address is an important communication link at the GTU.  Your gmail address will be assigned to you; to learn more about this system go to  The GTU Dean of Students Office will use your gmail account to communicate with you about information you will not receive by any other medium.  It is one of the ways to notify you of upcoming events, policy and procedure changes, and other important information.  It is very important that you set up your account and check it regularly.


GTU-ALERT Emergency Notification and Warning System  Sign up for this opt-in system for all students, facutly, and staff to be notified with emergency information.


Mail Boxes


GTU doctoral students and MA students who specialize in Jewish Studies and, therefore, are directly affiliated with GTU, can have a mailbox.  Student mailboxes are found in the basement of the GTU LeConte Building.  Student mailboxes are locked; you will receive information about how to obtain a box, if you wish, during orientation.  All other MA students have mailboxes at their school of affiliation.  If mailboxes are available, both GTU special students and MA students who are affiliated with SFTS, but who live in Berkeley, may request a mailbox.  Contact Fredonia Thompson, Student Affairs Office Manager, at 649-2400.


If you are not taking classes and/or it is impossible for you to check your mail box on a regular basis, please contact Fredonia Thompson, Student Affairs Office Manager, at 649-2400, and she will close out your box.
