Alumni Account & Google Storage Changes

Google has recently changed its policy for the Google Workspace applications (e.g. Google Drive) to limit storage usage for higher education institutions. In keeping with best practices in higher education to manage storage and to address security concerns, GW will no longer provide Google Drive or Google Calendar to alumni. Your Google email account will continue to be available to you, but it will now have a storage limit of 5GB. In preparation for this transition, we are asking that you backup any Google Drive, Calendar data and any email attachments that you wish to retain before January 31, 2024.

GW IT is also increasing security requirements for all GW accounts. Accounts must have a successful web login annually to remain active. Checking your GW email using a third party email application, like Outlook or Google Mobile App, and forwarding your GW email to another email account does not count as an active login.
