Google Calendar

Make sure you don’t miss a meeting due to an incorrect time zone!

Some users have reported incorrect time zones in their Google Calendar. This can result in incorrect meeting times, especially during the transition to and from daylight savings time. Here’s how to check your timezone settings and update if needed.

  1. Visit

  2. Ensure that you are logged in to your Spring Hill College Google account

  3. Click the gear icon in the top right corner of the Google Calendar web page

  4. Click Settings

  5. Under the General tab, find the section titled Your current time zone. Note that this is the third section down on the list

  6. Under the Your current time zone section, click the drop-down menu and select (GMT-06:00) Central Time as the current time zone

Your Google Calendar time zone settings should now be updated, and every new event will be created under the current, appropriate time zone.
