Thank you guest author Tessa Cocchio for this tutorial.

It's very easy to access your Gmail from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod. Here's how you set it up in 2 easy steps:

Note: You only have to do this ONCE. You will not have to sign in every time you open the app.

a. Open the Gmail app on your device. You will be prompted to sign in on a typical Google screen. On this screen, enter your full CCID name@ualberta.ca email address but leave the password box empty and then click the blue “Sign in” button.  It will look like this:
