To access Google Apps for Education you must use a combination of your campus username and identikey password. Although Google asks for your “Email”, the system cannot support the use of your email@example.com as a username. Instead, you must use firstname.lastname@example.org you log into the service. Once you are in the system you can use your preferred email address (usually email@example.com) to share resources.

Previously you had a personal Google account with which you used your @colorado.edu as your username. You must now associate that account with a new username-usually a new @gmail.com email address. You may need to manually migrate (share) Google Documents or Calendars with your new University Google Account. Learn how to address this issue at the Resolve Conflicting Accounts page.
I had a conflicting account, and now I can’t access my Google Calendar. What do I need to do?
The Google Calendar issue is really just another account conflict issue. Users who want to continue using their Google Calendars will need to share the calendars between their old, transitioned account and there new University Google Apps account.
If you aren't familiar with Google Calendar and how to share calendar, This Google-produced video is a great overview of the various sharing options in Calendar: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DmU02MRdXtk. If you’d like specific directions on how to share one calendar from your old, transitioned account to your new Google Apps account, please see these instructions: http://support.google.com/calendar/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=37082
Google/Gmail allows you to associate “secondary” email addresses with your Google Account, for use with Google Drive/Calendar and account verification. This message indicates that your firstname.lastname@example.org email address is no longer associated with your personal Gmail account. Going forward, to view Google Documents shared with your @colorado.edu email address, you should sign in with your @colorado.edu Google Apps Account.
Unfortunately there isn’t much standardization between calendars. And although you might find there are a number of applications that purport to sync an Exchange calendar with a Google calendar, OIT is not aware of any that are trusty enough to recommend one. Over time these sync applications tend to be inconsistent and lead to corrupt data. However, OIT will continue to monitor Google and Exchange calendar sync options and make a recommendation if a particular solution proves to be reliable.
