Google Apps Benefits

Unlimited Storage

Google Apps users now have unlimited storage of documents, photos, email and files through Google Drive.

Accessible: Anytime, Anywhere

Access your content on Google Drive from anywhere with an internet connection: computers and mobile devices

Offline Access

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.

SBU Branded E-mail

Email addresses follow this format: (common names will have some variation to this).

No More Updates

As a web service, Google Apps is automatically kept up to date by Google. You will not have to worry about installing updates yourself. 

Simplify Collaboration

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. 

Consistency and Comfort

Group Management Tools

Talk Freely

Who Gets An Account?

Accounts are automatically created for all eligible students, faculty, and staff. Special domains exist for retirees and alumni.

Former SB mail systems (Lotus Notes, MS, and MySBmail) are slowly being phased out and will eventually be decommissioned.
