Google Workspace (formerly G Suite) is a cloud-based suite of productivity and collaboration tools. It brings together popular Google apps, such as Drive, Classroom, Meet, Calendar, and Docs, into a single integrated workspace.

In addition to the University's recommended cloud collaboration and storage services, all faculty, staff, and students have access to Google Workspace at no cost. Sponsored accounts are addressed on a case-by-case basis; please contact the 24/7 Technology Help Desk for more information. 

Note: Upon graduation (transition to Alumni status), students will lose access to Google Workspace, including any files they own as well as access to anything that is shared with them in the Google environment.
