Google Apps for Education is the primary email system for everyone at Stony Brook University except Hospital employees and members of the School of Medicine and School of Dental Medicine. Stony Brook's Google Apps suite of products includes Mail, Calendar, Drive, Contacts, Sites, Groups, Hangouts and a host of other applications to enhance communication and real-time collaboration across campus.
Google Apps users now have unlimited storage of documents, photos, email and files through Google Drive.
Access your content on Google Drive from anywhere with an internet connection: computers and mobile devices
Through Chrome web browser, you can maintain access to your documents even if you're offline. Gmail, Calendar and Google Docs let users edit and create content when they're not online, and will automatically sync when they reconnect.
Email addresses follow this format: email@example.com (common names will have some variation to this).
As a web service, Google Apps is automatically kept up to date by Google. You will not have to worry about installing updates yourself.
Easily share and collaborate on documents, calendars, and websites through Google products. Google products allow for real-time collaboration - several people can simultaneously work on a document without interfering with one another.
